After several years of hard work and dedication, I am pleased to inform you that the Vermont Locality Pay rule has been finalized. See the attached documents. This creates a locality pay for our area, to take effect in January, 2019.
The big question on everyone’s mind – “How Much?” We still don’t know and might not know until just before 2019’s first full pay period. The amount will be set by the President.
An important note – The regulations are effective January 5, 2019, and are applicable on the first day of the first pay period beginning on or after January 1, 2019. The first full pay period of 2019 starts January 6, 2019.
Many thanks to the hard work of so many people to get Vermont’s federal employees to this important milestone. As soon as we hear additional information, we will get it released. Congratulations VERMONT!!
