Q. I will be retiring Dec. 28. Will I be on the annuity roll in January 2014 and eligible for a full cost-of-living adjustment on my January 2015 annuity check?

A. No, you won’t. Because you will be on the annuity roll for only 11 months — January through November — you’ll only get 11/12ths of that increase.
