WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- Most federal employees will soon see a larger 2003 pay increase thanks to an amended Executive Order 13282 providing retroactive locality pay. The increase varies by locality from .9 to 1.7 percent and will be retroactive to Jan. 12.
Officials at the Defense Finance and Accounting Service should make retroactive payments to Department of Defense civilians in April and May based on information received from personnel systems.
Federal Wage System employees should receive their retroactive pay in their April 25 paychecks based on timely receipt of personnel records.
General Schedule and other covered employees should receive their retroactive pay by the May 23 paycheck provided personnel actions are received by late April.
