Federal Employee Compensation Package: It’s More than Just Salary
You’re making a great choice when you choose a career with the U.S. Government. In addition to your take-home pay, our comprehensive compensation/benefits package is highly attractive. As a federal employee, you and your family have access to a range of benefits that are designed to make your federal career very rewarding.
Eligibility for benefits depends on the type of position you hold and whether your position is full-time, part-time, or intermittent. Contact the hiring agency for more information on the specific benefits offered. Some of the most popular benefits include:
· Salary- Federal Government offers competitive pay, with most positions based on the General Schedule (GS) pay system.
· Flexible Work Schedules- Maintain valuable contributions to your work group or office while working remotely or by operating on a non-traditional work schedule.
· Vacation, Personal and Sick Time- Enjoy paid and non-paid time off through our generous leave programs. You may also qualify for a higher leave accrual rate because of your non-federal work experience or uniformed service.
· Commuter Subsidies- Subsidies are available in some localities to offset work-related commuting expenses by utilizing public transportation.
