Locality Pay Increases Could Affect 30,000 Federal Employees The Federal Salary Council recommended a list of new locality pay areas and adjustments that would improve the salaries of nearly 30,000 federal employees if implemented

How Does the GS Pay Scale Work?

The General Schedule (GS) pay system (or “GS Pay Scale“) includes about 1.5 million federal employees in civilian white-collar jobs. The jobs are widely in clerical, administrative, professional and technical positions.

How Many Pay Grades and are in the GS Pay Scale?

The General Schedule includes 15 different pay grades. Each job is classified by the federal agency based on the qualifications required as well as the level of responsibility and difficulty to preform in the position. Educational backgrounds for the grades are generally as follows:

GS-2 positions: high school diploma and no additional experience GS-5 positions: college Bachelor’s degree GS-9 positions: Master’s degree

How Do You Move Up Steps in the GS Pay Scale?

Each of the 15 pay grades has 10 step rates (steps 1-10). Movement up to the next step (known as “within-grade step increases”) is based on acceptable job performance and varying periods of longevity as follows:

  • 1 year at steps 1-3
  • 2 years at steps 4-6
  • 3 years at steps 7-9

In terms of salary difference, each step is worth about 3% of the federal employee’s salary.

When Will There Be a 2024 Government Pay Raise?

The GS base pay schedule is usually adjusted annually each January with an across-the-board federal pay increase based on nationwide changes in the cost of wages and salaries of private industry workers. Most GS employees are also entitled to locality pay, which is a geographic-based percentage rate that reflects pay levels for non-federal workers in certain geographic areas as determined by surveys conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

What are the Current GS Locality Pay Areas?

There are currently more than 40 locality pay areas, which cover the lower 48 States and Washington, DC, plus Alaska, Hawaii, and the U.S. territories and possessions. Most of the locality pay areas cover large metropolitan areas (e.g., Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC), two cover entire States—Alaska and Hawaii, and the remainder of the United States and its territories and possessions are included in the catch-all Rest of U.S. (RUS) locality pay area. GS employees in foreign areas are not eligible for locality pay. The President and Congress may make changes in the otherwise applicable across-the-board and locality pay adjustments.

OPM may approve special rates which are higher than the normal GS rates due to difficulties in staffing certain occupations at GS grade levels in certain geographic areas.
