2012 Pay Rates Released

By on December 27, 2011 in Current Events with 86 Comments

OPM has released the 2012 General Schedule pay rates. FedSmith.com has also updated our pay calculator to reflect the new rates.

As readers are aware, 2012 is the second year of a two year pay freeze, so the base pay rates in 2012 remain unchanged over last year.

Locality percentages for most areas were unchanged as well, however Alaska, Hawaii and other non-foreign areas saw a slight increase in their locality percentages.
