Executive Order Issued on 2022 Pay Raise according to the executive order issued by President Biden. After four years of fighting proposals to freeze federal employee pay, this raise is a welcome change.
As part of his budget request, Biden proposed giving civilian federal employees an average pay increase of 2.7 percent raise in 2022, split between a 2.2 percent across-the-board raise and an average 0.5 percent increase in locality pay.
The Office of Personnel Management has issued new pay tables incorporating the pay raise at every level of the General Schedule and for each locality pay area. The pay raise goes into effect the first full pay period of the new year.
Federal salaries still lag behind those of their counterparts in the federal sector and starting in January we will resume the fight for a 2023 raise that will continue to narrow that gap.
