Current IRS employee, working at GS-09, Step 2, in a career-ladder position (5-7-9).  Time in grade is over 1 year.  Employee applied voluntarily for internal posting for position in a different job series, qualified at Grade 7.  Employee offered position at Grade 7.  New position is also a career-ladder position, 5-7-9.
 
Question is if employee will come in at a higher step in Grade 7 to retain previous salary level at Grade 9 or if the employee has to start at Grade 7 Step 1.  Would be almost a $10k salary decrease.  Receiving conflicting answers from HR at this time.  Original internal job posting noted that pay retention "may be authorized."
 
Thank you!

Since the applicant has been offered the position, simply ASK the HR contact person for the new position: Is highest previous rate (HPR) being applied to the GS-7 offer? If so, you will not be losing that $10k in pay, and you will be brought into the position at a higher GS-7 step. If the hiring agency has decided not to offer HPR, then you need to decide if you want the new position at that lower pay. Accept it or decline it. There is no absolute right to HPR; it is up to the hiring activity.

Asked HR specialist for position, still waiting on an answer...the hiring official told employee to contact HR for confirmation.  Hoping it all works out.

It has been a while since this post,

How did it go? I am in somewhat a similar situation,
I just got upgraded to a GS-11 but am hoping to get an offer for a GS-9 position elsewhere with a lower cost of living (from CA (SO EXPENSIVE * a 600 Sq ft STUDIO is well over 1100/mo if you can even get in), and was wondering how that would work.

Does anybody have any more up to date information on this?
