General Schedule (GS) Payscale in New York for 2022

Click any county to view locality pay tables

The General Schedule (GS) payscale is the federal government payscale used to determine the salaries of over 70% of federal civilian employees.

Under the GS payscale, an employee's base pay depends on two factors - the GS Paygrade of their job, and the Paygrade Step they have achieved (depending on seniority or performance). This base pay is then modified based on a "Locality Pay Adjustment", which adjusts the GS payscale based on cost-of-living in different areas within the United States.

New York has one or more Locality Pay Adjustment areas with special locality pay adjustment rates. This page lists the locality-adjusted yearly GS pay scales for each area, with starting pay for a GS-1 broken down by county in the interactive map. For a detailed calculation of your pay as a GS employee in New York, see our General Schedule Pay Calculator.

NEW YORK-NEWARK, NY-NJ-CT-PA

The NEW YORK-NEWARK, NY-NJ-CT-PA General Schedule locality region applies to government employees who work in New York City and surrounding areas. General Schedule employees who work within this region are paid 35.06% more than the GS base pay rates to account for local cost of living.
