The federal worker pay freeze might be over.

The White House will propose a 0.5% pay increase for federal workers in its 2013 budget proposal, an official from the Office of Management and Budget said Friday.

Federal pay has been frozen since December 2010, when Congress signed off on an Obama administration proposal to freeze federal worker pay for two years in the name of deficit reduction.

The administration is expected to release its new budget in February, and any proposed increase in federal pay will require the approval of Congress.
