Federal workers are about to get their first pay raise in three years. The modest one-percent, cost-of-living hike is part of the newly signed budget deal. President Barack Obama officially issued the order on December 23 to raise pay for more than 2-million civilian workers and active military. But the raise won't show up in federal workers checks for about two weeks until January 17, according to the General Services Administration. While civilians have missed out on cost-of-living increases in the past few years, pay hikes tied to promotions and bonuses have been allowed.
