Benefits are charged to sponsored accounts based on the actual rates in effect at the time salary is paid; actual rates may vary from these estimates. These rates are expected to change each November. Fringe Benefits include: FICA, Retirement, Life Insurance and Health Insurance.
CAUTION: These percentages are average estimates only. Employee benefits are charged to accounts at actual rates that will vary somewhat from these estimates. The estimated rates are designed to minimize the variances, which result from the rather wide range of salaries included under each of the salary groupings below. For example, family insurance coverage for a particular employee could result in larger fringe benefit expenses than these averages. PIs are advised to always consider this fact when developing proposal budgets and to budget for higher-than-average fringe benefits when conditions warrant.

Special remarks from DHHS Rate Agreement
TREATMENT OF FRINGE BENEFITS: Fringe benefits are specifically identified to each employee and are charged individually as direct costs. The directly claimed fringe benefits are listed below.
TREATMENT OF PAID ABSENCES: Vacation, holiday, sick leave pay and other paid absences are included in salaries and wages and are claimed on grants, contracts and other agreements as part of the normal cost for salaries and wages. Separate claims are not made for the costs of these paid absences.
OFF-CAMPUS DEFINITION: For all activities performed in facilities not owned by the institution and to which rent is directly allocated to the project(s), the off-campus rate will apply. Grants or contracts will not be subject to more than one F&A cost rate. If more than 50% of a project is performed off-campus, the off-campus rate will apply to the entire project.
The rates contained in this Agreement reflect the combined cost of the University of Georgia Research Foundation, Inc. and the University of Georgia, and will apply to grants and contracts awarded to the University.
