8) Can I double dip and earn points for both 1st time promoting to a rank AND being paid at that rank?

Yes! For example, if you 1st time promote to Director in March (which means you’ll also be paid-as a Director in March) you’ll earn 3000 points for your 1st time promotion + 3000 points for being paid-as Director = 6000 points!  



9) What Pay Rank consistency points  do I qualify for in a month when I promote in rank  more than one level?

You will earn points at the highest rank you reach in that month for the Paid-As rank consistency points you earn when you are paid-at a rank of SCE or higher in a calendar month.For example: If you are an SCE and you 1st time promote to ECE and Director in a given month, you will receive 1st time promotion points for ECE and Director; but, you will only earn “paid as” consistency points at the Director level (3,000 pts)  for that month.

If you double (or triple) promote, you will earn First Time Promotion points for each promotion you achieve from SCE and higher.
