A.20 Super Longevity Payments (formerly 4.06.18)

Marked obsolete 09/29/2020

The retirement law allows regular longevity payments to be reportable compensation as long as they are paid to all employees. Super longevity payments are paid in addition to regular longevity payments and are typically offered to a targeted group of staff. Super longevity payments are consistent with the definition of a bonus payment and are not reportable on a DTL2 - Wage and Service record. However, the wages must be considered as part of gross earnings when calculating member and employer contribution withholding for the Defined Contribution portion of a member benefit plan and for the Personal Healthcare Fund. The wages must be included in the Employer Reported Wages field on a DTL4 record.

For more information see section 4.01: Reportable Compensation.

Please note: reportable and nonreportable "compensation" is defined in MCL 38.1303a and only applies to active MPSERS members. For information on reporting earnings for retirees please see section 9.01: Earnings of Retirees Who Return to Work.
