Benefit Budget Past practice was to use average benefit rates of: 34.34% for academic employees 41.72% for classified employees These rates were intended to cover all required employer statutory benefits as well as negotiated health and welfare benefits. In hindsight, practice did not adequately provide for sufficient budget to pay for 100% of employer benefits.

For every employer paid benefit, a unique account code has been created and the annual cost budgeted for by program. Accounting Advisory – GASB 45 – Accounting for OPEB “OPEB costs for active eligible employees are a direct cost to programs and grants where employees are currently charged.”
