All employment with the System and any other agency or institution of the State of Texas, including employment as a student worker, will count as creditable state service for longevity and hazardous duty pay purposes. Employment with independent school districts and/or junior or community colleges is not state employment.
Creditable service is to be counted regardless of method of salary payment (hourly, monthly, etc.), length of appointment, percentage of full-time worked, continuity of service, or eligibility for longevity and hazardous duty pay in a prior position. Length of service is determined by counting the actual days, months and years of state employment.
The following resources may be helpful in providing additional information about state service:
- System Regulation 31.01.04: Longevity and Hazardous Duty Pay, section 4
- Employment Verifications for longevity, current and previous state employment verifications.
- Longevity Pay Chart from the Texas Comptroller
