Here are the new minimum and maximum salaries by grade for federal workers under the GS (general schedule) system. Most received an average 7 percent raise this month, although workers in the two lowest grades got 9.2 percent while those in the very top grades got 5.5 percent or less:

Grade 1, $7,210 to $6,126; Grade 2, $8,128 to $10,327; Grade 3, $8,952 to $11,634; Grade 4, $10,049 to $13,064; Grade 5, $11,243 to $14,618.

Grade 6, $12,531 to $16,293; Grade 7, $13,925 to $18,101; Grade 8, $15,423 to $20,049; Grade 9, $17,035 to $22,147; Grade 10, $18,760 to $24,385.

Grade 11, $20,611 to $26,794; Grade 12, $24,703 to $32,110; Grade 13, $29,375 to $38,186; Grade 14, $34,713 to $45,126; Grade 15, $40,832 to $50,112.50.

Grade 16, $47,889 to $50,112.50; Grade 17 and Grade 18 will pay a flat $50,112.50 because that is expected to be the new career salary ceiling that will be set by the White House, based on the 5.5 percent raise for executives.
