Longevity Pay

 

HR - Longevity Pay

 

Longevity pay is provided to all full-time employees who are not on leave without pay the first workday of the month and who have at least two years of lifetime service credit. Part-time employees do not receive longevity pay on a proportional basis. Those ineligible for longevity pay include members of the legislature, individuals in public office, temporary workers, or academic employees of institutions of higher education. Length of service for longevity pay is determined in the same manner as length of service for annual leave. Legislative service is included in determining lifetime service credit purposes of longevity pay. The present schedule for longevity pay is shown in the table below:
