    On December 27, 2019, OPM issued four memoranda regarding the 2020 pay adjustments.

    For federal employees in Hawaii, Locality Pay is increased from 18.98% to 19.56%, and the general across the board pay increase is 2.6% – the net result is a 3.10% pay raise (prior to applying the non-foreign COLA offset required under the Non-foreign Area Retirement Equity Assurance Act of 2010).

    With the COLA offset required under law applied, the non-foreign COLA amounts are:

    Honolulu County:   10.28%  (reduced from 10.64% in 2019)

    Hawaii County:  4.42% (reduced from 4.76% in 2019)

    Kauai County and Maui County see the same pay as does Honolulu County.

    For Guam/CNMI, locality pay for 2019 is 15.95% (increased from 15.67% in 2019), and COLA is reduced from 12.80% to 12.62% (2020).  Locality pay rates for Guam/CNMI are calculated at the “Rest of U.S.” rate.

    The 2020 federal civilian pay raise represents the largest in a decade.
