Cost of Living Adjustment. An annual 

Adjustment

 in wages to 

Offset

 a change (usually a loss) in purchasing power, as measured by the 

Consumer

 Price Index. The 

Consumer

 Price 

Index

 is used rather than the Producer Price 

Index

 because the purpose is to 

Offset

 inflation as experienced by the consumer, not the producer.
