Note: Certain senior political officials may not receive a pay increase in 2015 or receive the 2015 established pay rates due to section 738 of title VII of division E of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015. Section 738 continues the freeze on the payable pay rates for the Vice President and certain senior political appointees at applicable 2013 levels. The new pay freeze period commences on the first day of the first pay period that begins in January 2015 through the end of the last pay period that begins in 2015 (January 11, 2015, through January 9, 2016, for those on the standard biweekly pay period cycle). However, the officially established and posted pay rates (or pay ranges) for 2015 are in effect and used for determining pay for other employees. See and for more information.
