Opm Gs Pay Scale Alaska – The 2024 wage increase is a step closer to completion after President Biden released another wage plan letter yesterday, outlining the amounts he wants for next year’s wage increase for federal workers.
Predicting the increase in the number of how each area of DC pays will fare in 2024 would be futile. When the amount is complete, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) will provide a copy of the 2024 General Schedule (GS) pay tables, including the 2024 GS area pay. This usually happens in December.

In March, the Biden administration proposed a 5.2% wage increase by 2024. This is the first step in a complex process. Congress has shown reluctance to authorize additional funding.

The next step happened on August 31, 2023, when President Biden issued another letter of the 2024 salary plan.
Title 5, United States Code, allows me to make certain policies to adjust the salaries of public employees involved in the General Schedule and other payment systems or, as a result of “a national emergency or a serious economic situation affecting public health,” increase that would seem inappropriate.
Congress may also legislate to establish different amounts of wage increases. Since this was not done earlier this year, and there have been several times when Congress could have done it in legislation under consideration, it is possible but unlikely that it will happen in the 2024 wage increase for federal employees.
The 5.2% pay increase, assuming it is the final amount, would be divided between an average of 0.5% of the pay zones and 4.7% as a pay increase, according to what Biden said in the letter.
Federal Employee Gs Pay Scale Tables
In 2023, the average salary increase was 4.6%. The 2023 wage increase was the largest wage increase in 20 years for union workers. During the Bush administration, civil servants received the same salary increase of 4.6% back in 2002. On the other hand, and the news is better for those civil servants in 2002, the inflation rate was 1.6%. (See
However, largely due to inflation, the 2024 federal wage increase will likely exceed the 4.8% wage increase for state employees approved in 1981 during the Carter administration.
Has created this 2024 GS pay scale table of base pay rates to provide basic information to readers.
Although we won’t know the percentage increase for each pay zone until later this year, it is possible to calculate an estimate of how the bottom pay for each GS pay grade will change before the final pay zone is calculated.

This table shows the 2024 GS pay scale based on the expected 2024 federal salary increase of 5.2% and the 2024 General Schedule (GS) base salary increase of 4.7%.
Why only 4.7% and not 5.2%? 5.2% is likely an average increase, and when the annual federal salary increase is given each year, it usually includes the full base salary increase and the amount set aside for local pay. Since the president proposed a salary increase of 4.7% and 0.5% of the local salary in one of his salary plan letters, we used the figure of 4.7% for the salary table for 2024 GS.
Note that the 2024 GS pay scale will not be finalized until OPM releases the final numbers after the 2024 federal pay scale is finalized by the Supreme Court. In most years this happens in December. Last year, the Executive Order implementing the 2023 federal salary increase was issued on December 23.
This means that there will be adjustments in the final amount. The final adjustment will show a significant increase in areas that normally receive large salary increases. Often, this includes an increase in wages in large cities due to local wages. Here are the 2023 GS salary tables for each location.

In a new Federal Register notice issued on June 28, 2023, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) proposed four new pay centers. These four are:
Note that this list is suggested, and not exhaustive. In all likelihood, these four locations will be approved at the end of 2023 to be added to the 2024 local payment location list. We won’t know what the salary increases are for these new positions until OPM announces the 2024 pay rates.
The 2023 GS pay scale is based on an average salary increase of 4.6%. The federal wage increase in 2023 included an international wage of 4.1% and 0.5% of the local wage.

2024 Projection – At this time, the 2024 GS Pay increase is expected to be between 2% and 4% as inflation cools. I will provide updates as more CPIs and COLAs become available.
Understanding General Schedule (gs) Jobs
With above average inflation rates and a record cost of living adjustment (COLA) for 2023, many experts have predicted a record increase in wages for workers on the GS pay scale.
This was confirmed by President Biden’s Executive Order (EO) and money in the omnibus government spending bill, which followed the first letter of the pay plan and confirmed an average salary increase of 4.6% for federal workers on the GS pay scale in 2023.
Note that the federal wage increase in 2023 includes an average of 0.5% pay increase, which varies by location (see details in the sections below). However, the 4.1% salary increase will be the same for all federal government employees on the GS pay scale.
See the revised and finalized 2023 GS (base) salary chart below which shows an increase of 4.1%, which does not include the 0.5% salary increase. The salary increase will start from 1 January 2023.

[Update December 23, 2022] President Biden confirmed through an Executive Order (EO) that DC pay rates will increase by an average of 4.6% (4.1% base and 0.5% local pay).
This is based on his original payment (another program) for the settlement of civil servants of the state due to “a national disaster or a serious economic situation that affects public health.”
In particular, I decided that in 2023, the global salary will be 4.1% and the local salary increase will reach 0.5%, resulting in an average increase of 4.6% for civil servants. This alternative payment system will allow the federal government to better compete in the labor market to attract and retain skilled public servants in the face of growing recruitment and retention challenges… which has resulted in a significant wage gap for public servants compared to the private sector. President Biden
I will update this article as news and speculation about 2024 GS Pay becomes available. At this time with low inflation, I expect the increase in 2024 to be about 2%.

DC salary increases are ending following President Biden’s Executive Order and the passage of the 2023 omnibus bill. The official tables, including the 55 local pay tables linked below, are published by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The average salary increase in the area was 0.5%, but will vary by location.
Federal employees on the GS Pay scale received a 2.2% across-the-board base pay increase for 2022, plus a 0.5% local pay increase, totaling a 2.7% average increase.
The changes came into effect on 1 January 2022. The increase was more than double the increase in average wages in 2021, reflecting the cost of living.

See below for the 2022 GS Base Pay scale table of steps and grades showing the 2.2% base pay adjustment. Local pay adjustments (0.5%) will vary by location and can be found at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) website.
Despite the possibility of a 2021 wage freeze for federal workers, Congress approved a 1 percent increase for federal workers on the GS pay scale. This was not good news in an environment where inflation is rising, and especially since members of the military saw a 3% increase in their military pay in 2021.
