Report: OPM Issues Pay Freeze Extension for Top Govt Officials

The Office of Personnel Management will extend a pay freeze for top government officials that include high-level political appointees through the Jan. 19 government shutdown deadline, Government Executive reported Thursday.

Congress passed a four-week continuing resolution Dec. 19 that also extends a deadline for executive schedule pay freeze.

Acting OPM Director Kathleen McGettigan said the pay freeze will apply to all politically appointed members of the Senior Executive Service along with senior level officials that meet the EX-IV threshold at $164,200 in 2018.

“Until Congress acts on appropriations legislation, we will not know whether the pay freeze continues beyond January 19, 2018,” McGettigan added.
