The postal pay chart shows the pay rate for postal workers. It shows the raises and cost-of-living increases postal workers receive or can expect to receive during the pay period. These charts are published twice per year, usually in March and September, unless interim charts are needed.
The pay increases predicted for January of a given year are shown on the chart from September of the previous year. If the information for the increase isn't available when a chart is printed, the column for the increase is marked TBD.
The pay chart also shows annual and hourly rates for postal workers. This information is based on hiring dates, worker classifications and worker grades.
