Locality raises are determined by comparisons of local private sector salary rates, not by cost of living. An individual’s rate is based on where he or she works, not where he or she lives.

Four new localities are effective in 2024 and the boundaries of most prior localities were expanded, providing an additional pay boost to affected employees—a total of some 33,300—by moving them into an area with a specific rate from the rest of the U.S. locality. The raises for the new localities are: Fresno, Calif., 5.28; Reno, Nev., 5.25; Rochester, N.Y., 5.46; and Spokane, Wash., 5.31.

Federal Pay Systems
The general schedule salary system for white collar federal employees is what is generally referred to the “civil service” pay system even though it now covers only just more than half of the workforce. The wage system for blue collar employees is the next largest while numerous other special salary systems make up the rest.

Separate salary systems are maintained for Senior Executive Service members, the U.S. Postal Service, the Foreign Service, law enforcement officers, most medical personnel of the Veterans Health Administration and high-level officials including administrative law judges, Board of Contract Appeal members, and certain senior professional employees.

Presidential appointees are paid under the Executive Schedule system while federal judges and members of Congress also have separate pay schedules.
