Regular full-time employees and regular part-time employees working at least 82.05%,
who have completed at least 36 months of service at 82.05% receive an annual longevity
payment for each year of eligible service, $100/year up to a maximum of $3000. Credit
is given for prior State of Tennessee service, and for term positions that were 40
hours/week exactly prior to the date hired as regular (82.05% or more). Longevity
pay is distributed on approximately the 19th of the month (view Payroll calendars) following the employee's longevity anniversary month.
You may defer your longevity before income tax but after Social Security and Medicare taxes.
