Payments made by a school district for the purchase of tax-deferred annuities for its employees under § 10, chapter 21, Laws of 1963, Ex. Sess., constitute a form of "earnable compensation" under RCW 41.32.010 both as amended by § 1, chapter 14, Laws of 1963, Ex. Sess., and as presently defined, but payments which may be made by a school district for group hospitalization and medical insurance for its employees under chapter 75, Laws of 1963, do not.
