Educational premium payments are not LEOFF Plan I basic salary.

(1) If an employer provides additional salary based upon the member's level of education that payment is based upon the attributes of the individual and is not attached to the position. It is a special salary or wage and is not basic salary.
Example:
An employer employs two different law enforcement officers in the position of sergeant. Although their duties are the same, one sergeant receives 3% more in salary than the other because she has a bachelor's degree which the other lacks. The additional 3% is not attached to the position because it is not attached to any additional duties. It is not basic salary for LEOFF Plan I.
(2) Payments conditioned upon acquiring and maintaining a designated certification such as emergency medical technician are a form of educational premium pay. The payment is based upon the attributes of the individual and is not attached to the position. It is a special salary or wage and is not basic salary.
