Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 1994 - Directs the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, as of December 1, 1994, to increase the rates of and limitations on: (1) veterans' disability compensation; (2) additional compensation for veterans' dependents; (3) the clothing allowance for certain disabled veterans; (4) dependency and indemnity compensation for surviving spouses and children; and (5) supplemental dependency and indemnity compensation for disabled adult children. Requires such increases to be the same percentage as the increase in benefit amounts payable under title II (Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance) (OASDI) of the Social Security Act.

Authorizes the Secretary to adjust administratively the rates of disability compensation payable to certain persons who are not in receipt of compensation for service-connected disability or death.

Requires the Secretary to publish such rate increases and limitations in the Federal Register at the same time that OASDI benefit increases are required to be published.
