What’s the minimum raise I can receive on promotion?
If you are under the General Schedule, your pay will be set at the rate that will pay at least the equivalent of a two-step increase. If your official worksite is changed to a new location, your grade and step would be converted to the new official worksite before the two-step promotion rule is applied.

If you are in the Federal Wage System, your pay would be set at a rate of the higher grade that will pay at least 4 percent more than the rate of the grade from which you were promoted.
