Pay & Leave Salaries & Wages

Locality Pay Area Definitions

The locality pay areas and definitions for 2012 are the same as those in effect in 2011. Most of the place names listed below are counties. The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) geographic codes consist of a two-digit State and three-digit county identifier. These geographic codes are derived from the Worldwide Geographic Location Codes, 1993. The District of Columbia, Alaska, Hawaii, and the other Nonforeign areas are identified by State code only. Please note that Berwick town, Eliot town, Kittery town, South Berwick town, and York town in York County, ME, remain in the Boston locality pay area, while the remainder of York County, ME, remains in the "Rest of U.S." locality pay area. State, city, and county geographic codes are listed for applicable cities and towns in York County, ME. State, city, and county codes also are listed for Edwards Air Force Base, in Kern County, CA, which is part of the Los Angeles locality pay area, for the Federal Correctional Complex, Butner, NC, which is part of the Raleigh-Durham-Cary, NC, locality pay area, and for McGuire Air Force Base and Fort Dix in Burlington County, NJ, which are part of the New York locality pay area. These are the only exceptions to the use of State/county codes.

Section 1911 of P.L. 111-84, the Non-Foreign Area Retirement Equity Assurance Act of 2009, phases-in locality pay for employees in the non-foreign areas as identified in 5 C.F.R. 591.205. For 2012, employees in the non-foreign areas will receive the full applicable locality pay percentage approved by the President for their location. Alaska and Hawaii are separate locality pay areas with separate pay tables. Other non-foreign areas are included as part of the Rest of U.S. (RUS) locality pay area and the RUS pay tables apply in 2012.
