General Schedule (GS) Payscale Table for 2019

Base pay rates are established in the congressional budget or by executive order in lieu of a budget. Each year, the new pay rates go into effect on January 1st.

On average, federal employees receive 1-3% raise each year. Effective raises may be higher in some areas when factoring in changes to locality rate adjustments as well.

Last year, federal employees received a 1% raise. The table below shows the federal General Schedule Base Payscale factoring in next-year's expected 1.5% across-the-board raise.

The official 2019 GS payscale will be published here as soon as the official rates are released.

This is 2019's unofficial General Schedule (GS) Pay Scale including an expected 1.5% raise.
