In general, payments cannot be reported to the retirement system unless they are for services rendered. However, the legislature has identified some types of compensation which are reportable even though they are not for services rendered.
(1) WAC 415-108-464
discuss all payments that are not for services rendered that nonetheless qualify as reportable compensation.
(2) WAC 415-108-475
discuss some payments that are not a salary or wage for services rendered and so do not qualify as reportable compensation. A payment not for services rendered other than those identified in WAC 415-108-464
is not reportable compensation even if it is not listed in WAC 415-108-475
(3) A payment made in lieu of a payment that is not for services rendered (such as a payment made in lieu of a car allowance) will be treated in the same way that the original payment was treated. Such a payment is not for services rendered and is not reportable.
