Frequently Asked Questions Classification

I work for TSA or another agency with pay bands instead of grades; what should I put for "grade" when applying for another Federal job?

Contact the hiring agency for guidance on providing this information. Typically, the hiring agency will accept your band in place of grade in the application process. Your band will be noted on your SF-50 in block 10 and/or 18. If you do not have a copy of your most recent SF-50, please contact your servicing human resources office.
