Within Grade Increases and Who Gets Them

General schedule employees in permanent positions (including those to which the employee has been promoted on a temporary or term basis for at least one year) are eligible for within grade increases, unless they are denied for poor performance, after the following waiting periods: 52 weeks for advancement to steps 2-4; 104 weeks for advancement to steps 5-7; and 156 weeks for advancement to steps 8-10.

Wage grade employees performing acceptably advance to the second step after six months, to the third after another 18 months and to the fourth and fifth after another two years each at their prior steps.

A WGI waiting period begins upon first appointment in the federal service, receipt of an “equivalent increase,” or after a period of nonpay status and/or a break in service in excess of 52 calendar weeks. Civilian employment in any branch of the federal government (executive, legislative, or judicial) or with a government corporation is creditable service in the computation of a waiting period.

Service credit is given for periods of annual, sick, and other leave with pay and service under a temporary or term appointment. See 5 CFR 531.406 for special rules regarding the crediting of military service, time in a non-pay status, time during which an employee receives injury compensation, and certain other periods of service.

Within grade increases not meant to be “routine”

OPM has stressed that within-grade raises must be linked to performance and “should never be viewed as automatic or routine.”

Various special pay authorities allow agencies flexibility in assigning step levels to employees.

Also, a “quality step increase” of one step can be awarded under some agency performance incentive programs. A QSI is a faster-than-normal WGI used to reward employees at any GS grade level who display high quality performance. To be eligible for a QSI, employees must:

  • be below step 10 of their grade level;
  • have received the highest rating available under their performance appraisal system;
  • have demonstrated sustained performance of high quality; and
  • have not received a QSI within the preceding 52 consecutive calendar weeks.

A QSI does not affect the timing of an employee’s next regular WGI unless the QSI places the employee in step 4 or step 7 of his or her grade. In these cases, the employee becomes subject to the full waiting period for the new step—i.e., 104 weeks or 156 weeks, respectively—and the time an employee has already waited counts towards the next increase. The employee receives the full benefit of receiving a WGI at an earlier date and has not lost any time creditable towards his or her next WGI.

Where pay banding is used, steps are eliminated and so are within-grade increases, including quality step increases. Typically, funds that otherwise would have been used for those increases become part of the performance pay pool.

Within Grade Increase (WG/GS)

Within-grade increases (WGIs), or step increases, are periodic increases in a General Schedule (GS) or Wage Grade (WG) employee’s rate of basic pay from one step of the grade of his or her position to the next higher step of that grade.

Employees who occupy permanent positions earn WGIs upon meeting the following three requirements established by law:

  • The employee’s performance must be at an acceptable level of competence. To meet this requirement, an employee’s most recent performance rating of record must be at least Level 3 ("Fully Successful" or equivalent). In most agencies, this eligibility requires a rating of fully successful or equivalent. Depending on the nature of an agency's performance management system, it is not unusual for an employee to be above the unacceptable level but below the level required for a within-grade increase.
  • The employee must have completed the required waiting period for advancement to the next higher step.
  • The employee must not have received an "equivalent increase" in pay during the waiting period. (See 5 CFR 531.407.)

A WGI waiting period begins upon (1) first appointment in the Federal service, (2) receiving an "equivalent increase," or (3) after a period of nonpay status and/or a break in service in excess of 52 calendar weeks.

   A WGI is effective on the first day of the first pay period beginning on or after the completion of the required waiting period. (5 U.S.C. 5335 and 5 CFR 531.412.)

Once a within-grade increase has been denied, a supervisor has the flexibility to approve a within-grade increase at any time thereafter once the employee is determined to be performing at an acceptable level of competence, but the agency must consider the employee's performance at least every 52 weeks after the denial.

(2) On the first day of a period of service after a break in service or time in a nonppay status in excess of 52 weeks; or

(3) On receipt of an equivalent increase.

(c) Creditable service. The following periods of time shall be considered creditable service for purposes of waiting periods for within-grade increases:

(1) Time during which an employee is in receipt of pay, including periods of leave with pay;

(2) Time during which an employee with a prearranged regular scheduled tour of duty is in a nonpay status to the extent that the time in a nonpay status does not exceed, in the aggregate:

(i) One workweek in the waiting period for step 2;

(ii) Three workweeks in the waiting period for step 3; or

(iii) Four workweeks in the waiting period for steps 4 and 5;

(3) Time during which an employee or former employee is on leave of absence or is separated from Federal service and is entitled to continuation of pay or compensation under subchapter I of chapter 81 of title 5, United States Code.

Military service means honorable active service in the Armed Forces, in the Regular or Reserve Corps of the Public Health Service after June 30, 1960, or as a commissioned officer of the Environmental Science Services Administration after June 30, 1961, but does not include service in the National Guard, except when ordered to active duty in the service of the United States.

(9) Time during which an employee is temporarily employed by another agency in a position covered by this subpart.

(d)Effective date. A within-grade increase shall be effective at the beginning of the first applicable pay period following the day an employee becomes eligible for the increase.

(e)Equivalent increase. The following shall not be counted as equivalent increases:

(9) Temporary limited promotion followed by change to lower grade to the former or a different lower grade;

(10) A transfer or reassignment in the same grade and step to another local wage area with a higher wage schedule;

(11) Repromotion to a former or intervening grade of any employee whose earlier change to lower grade was not for cause and was not at the employee's request; and
