State longevity is a benefit provided to full-time staff employees. Staff receive $20 per month for every 24 months of lifetime state service up to and including 42 years of service (maximum of $420 per month). It begins the first of the month following completion of each 24 month period. Prior state service is calculated after verification from prior state employers. These verified months are entered into our system to automatically track eligibility for increases. State longevity pay is not available to faculty or part-time employees.
It usually takes three to six weeks from your date of hire to verify your prior state service. Some agencies may take a longer time to research your service. As soon as we have received all verifications, we will provide you and your supervisor a memo showing all prior state service that was verified. This information will be entered into our computer system so that it will continue to track correctly for purposes of State longevity pay and vacation accruals.
