Anniversary Date and Salary Increment

An anniversary date is the biweekly pay period in which an employee is eligible, if warranted by performance and place in the salary range, for a salary increase. Anniversary dates may change due to advancement or promotion, leave without pay and movement from 12 to 10 month or vice versa.

An increment is the advancement from current salary step to the next higher step within the same salary range. Salary increments are usually applied once per year up to step 8, if warranted by performance. Step increments beyond step 8 require a longer waiting period to reach the maximum of the salary range. Increments are applied within the pay period of the anniversary date.

The anniversary date for Higher Education Managers is July 1
