If you want to work for the federal government and make a decent income, there’s any number of jobs that are available. The average income throughout the federal government, after all, was $85,284 last year, which is up from $83,072 in 2016, reports the Washington Post.
Not bad at all.
But which agency pays the best? For that, you’d have to work for the Securities and Exchange Commission or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., two financial-related agencies that required a high degree of experience and specialized knowledge of their workers. Their average salaries last year averaged $184,817 and $145,430 last year, respectively.
