Withholding Within-Grade-Increase

There are three situations under which a within-grade-increase(WGI) is withheld:

  • When the rating of record is "Fully Successful" and performance has deteriorated to less than "Fully Successful"; Note: An off-cycle appraisal given for within-grade increase purposes (to either withhold or deny) is considered a rating-of-record. (See 5CFR 531.404(a)).

  • When the rating of record is less than "Fully Successful";

  • When the employee failed to demonstrate fully successful performance during the period a decision has been postponed on an employee's eligibility for a WGI.
