2017 Locality Pay Area Definitions

Below is a list of the GS locality pay areas applicable in January 2017 and the locations composing them. Most of the locations listed are counties. The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) geographic codes consist of a two-digit State and three-digit county identifier. These geographic codes are derived from the Worldwide Geographic Location Codes, 1993. The only exceptions to the use of State/county codes in the locations listed below are—

  • State codes are used for the Alaska and Hawaii locality pay areas, and
  • State, city, and county codes also are listed for—
    • Sullivan City, MO, in the St. Louis-St. Charles-Farmington, MO-IL, locality pay area, and
    • Three duty stations representing Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in the New York-Newark, NY-NJ-CT-PA, locality pay area.

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.
