Fringe benefits must be budgeted in grants for all SIUSOM personnel who have salary being charged to the grant. Standard fringe benefits are not budgeted for graduate assistants or student workers.

Our current approved policy, set by the federal government, has established all fringe benefit rates: medical (including health, dental, and life insurance) and retirement/Medicare, as a single percentage of salary.

Current fiscal year: July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019

July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2020 use the same rates and conditions as those cited above.
