Federal pay policy is elaborate and highly structured. Congress determines federal salaries, under three systems: General Schedule (GS), Senior Executive Service (SES) and Executive Level. There are also classifications and job grading within these systems, and special rules around annual adjustments, overtime, severance and deductions. Find answers to your paycheck questions in the subtopics under Pay in the menu above.
