Federal employees are to receive an average pay raise of 5.2% in 2024. This figure includes an across-the-board raise of 4.7%, with an additional 0.5% on average for locality adjustments.
If approved (it’s expected to pass), the new pay increase will become effective on January 1, 2024.
This marks the largest annual increase in salaries for federal employees since 1980. Yet, some argue that it should be greater. Given that the overall pay increases over the previous five years have been quite short of inflation, we’re inclined to concur.
