Well, I certainly hope I get the raise.  It would be nice!  I wonder when I will hear about it officially.  Maybe they will wait until we start in January to tell us?

i'm not sure that we're going to get the raise since the start date is Jan, 07.

Jeez people  - get a clue.
 
The raise will be applied to the GS schedule and not to select people.  Every grade and every step will increase by 7%.  You get the increased pay no matter when you start.

On the POPA web site it says that the pay increase has been submitted to OPM for approval, which is required.  I am not familiar with OPM, does that mean OPM could still veto the pay increase?  
 
Also, the pay tables on the USPTO have not been updated to reflect the increase.
 
Maybe someone with more insight can give a little more explanation.
 
I can see why some people might be hesitant to believe this.  I myself signed a contract with a specific amount - the G5 step 10 amt.  And I have not been notified otherwise.  
 
Not saying I don't believe you, just saying I understand both sides.
