Are salary increases based on longevity or educational attainment considered reportable compensation?

Most employees receive a base rate of salary or wages expressed as an hourly or monthly rate of pay. This payment is for services you provide and qualifies as reportable compensation. Your rate of salary may be based in part 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 service due to greater experience or more education.
(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 compensation.
