Fringe Rate

Fringe Benefits are calculated on all regular employees of the University, including postdoctoral research associates and intermittent employees. Benefits are not calculated on graduate assistants or student workers. The fringe benefit rate is never negotiable.

The fringe benefit rate is 41% for fiscal year 13-14.

The fringe benefit rate is 43% for fiscal year 14-15 and beyond

Please begin to use 41% for full time employees on all proposal budgets and continue to use 8.2% for intermittent wage employees. You should continue to include a 2% fringe increase in your annual budgets for future fiscal years.  Be sure to use 43% fringe benefit rate for fiscal year 2014-2015 and beyond.
