    U.S. Pacific Command announced changes to the 2017 Hawaii Cost of Living Allowance effective Sept. 1, 2017.
    All members stationed in Hawaii will receive a decrease in COLA based on a point based index system.
    For example, whereas Oahu was rated at 124 points in the year 2016, which reflected the average prices paid for items to be 24 percent higher, the island is now rated at 120 points for 2017, which reflects a four point decrease with prices paid now only 20 percent higher.
    Hawaii Island will also experience a four point decrease, Kauai a six point decrease, and Maui an eight point decrease.
    A change of one index point equates to approximately $30 a month for an E-6 with three dependents and 10 years of service or $40 a month for an O-3 with three dependents and 10 years of service.
