Page updated 10/10/2017

 

There are 47 General Schedule (GS) locality pay areas applicable in January 2017. Locality Pay Areas Definitions list the areas within a locality that receive this adjustment. The majority of locations within a specific locality are counties, a few are identifyed by state codes. This page covers parts of the states listed below.

Note: Section 1911 of P.L. 111-84, the Non-Foreign Area Retirement Equity Assurance Act of 2009, phased in locality pay for employees in the non-foreign areas as identified in 5 C.F.R. 591.205. Alaska and Hawaii are separate locality pay areas with separate pay tables. Other non-foreign areas are included as part of the Rest of U.S. locality pay area.
