Salary or wages.

Most employees receive a base rate of salary or wages expressed as an hourly or monthly rate of pay. This payment is for services rendered and qualifies as reportable compensation. Two possible components of an employee's base rate are salary considerations based on longevity or educational attainment.
(1) A member who receives a salary increase based upon longevity or educational attainment receives a higher salary without working more hours. The higher salary indicates a higher level of performance due to greater experience or more education. The payment is therefore a payment for personal service and is reportable compensation.
(2) Simply attaching the label "longevity" to a payment does not guarantee that it will be reportable compensation. If a payment described as a longevity payment is actually based upon some other criteria, such as retirement or notification of intent to retire, the payment may not be reportable.
