Salary and Financial

Competitive Salaries + Locality Pay

Our basic salaries are set by Congress and are very competitive. Each year, the President and Congress consider whether or not to raise government-wide pay across-the-board. Your basic pay also includes Locality Pay — determined by your geographic location — that reflects the relative cost of labor across the country.

  • Paid in addition to basic pay
  • Ranges from 7% to 15%

For more information, review the OPM Pay Administration Main Page.
