Frequently Asked Disability Questions Fairbanks AK

Cost of Living Adjustment ensures that the disability insurance benefit's paid to you will increase over time based on the cost of living. We assume that the cost of living will continue to go up and that is why disability insurance companies have COLA is an option.
