The OCC offers a performance-based merit pay program designed to reward employees for excellent performance while allowing the OCC to align its human resources with its strategic direction and goals. The OCC pay plan/salary structure includes nine pay bands that provide equal pay ranges for jobs with comparable responsibilities.

Employees in certain cities also receive geographic pay differentials that are paid in addition to base salary to recognize cost of labor differences. Supplemental geographic pay is combined with employees' base pay to make up their adjusted base pay which is used in benefits calculations, including retirement.

Pay increases are based on individual performance without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, protected genetic information, sexual orientation, parental status, or other non-merit factors.
