Recent FAQs 

Question: I retired or resigned since June 30, 2020.  Am I eligible for retroactive pay for the contractual raises in our current 2020-2023 contract?  Am I eligible for the COVID bonus?


  • To be eligible for the contractual raise that is effective July 2020, you must have been employed from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.  If you retired between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, you are also eligible and the amount due to you will be adjusted to reflect the time worked during that fiscal year.  If you resigned or were terminated before June 30, 2021, you would not be eligible for the July 1, 2020 2.5% increase.
  • To be eligible for the July 1, 2021 2.0% increase, you must have been employed as of the first pay period of July 2021, which started July 4, 2021.  No other restrictions or qualifications were attached to this increase, so if you retired, resigned, or left employment with the state universities after July 4, 2021, you would be eligible for this increase on any wages for this pay period and after.
  • To be eligible for the 1.5% COVID bonus, you must have been employed from July 1, 2021 through September 20, 2021.  If you left employment prior to September 20, 2021, regardless of the reason, you will not be eligible for this bonus.
