Communication Allowances

Texas A&M University Standard Administrative Procedure 25.99.09.M1.01 describes Communication Allowances which are available to eligible Texas A&M employees. Allowances are paid to eligible employees through a payroll supplement and do not increase the employee's base salary.

Communication Allowances comprise two components:

  • One-time allowance for equipment and activation fees, and
  • Monthly allocations, via salary supplements, for service plans.

In accordance with System Regulation 25.99.09, a department may elect to provide a monetary contribution toward an employee's acquisition of a cellular communication device. To initiate this process the Cellular Communication Device Reimbursement form must be completed and submitted to the Texas A&M University Payroll Services Office.

To subscribe to a Communication Allowances Rate Plan, or to change an existing plan, a "Monthly Communication Allowance Enrollment" form must be completed and submitted to the Texas A&M University Payroll Services Office.
