Congress to Increase Fed Pay Raise
Congress is expected to pass a 2.0 percent pay increase for federal civilian employees on Friday.
Chris McConnell | GovCentral
Congressional negotiators closed a deal Tuesday night that includes a 2.0 percent federal employee pay adjustment, which includes a 1.5 percent nationwide increase in base pay and a 0.5 percent average increase in locality pay. Congress is expected to pass the pay raise and Omnibus spending bill on Friday.
Last week, President Obama announced a 2.0 percent increase in base pay with no adjustment in locality pay. With Congress splitting the 2 percent across base and locality pay, federal employees are expected to receive a nominal increase overall. This is due to the fact that locality pay percentage becomes a multiplier of sorts.
