UNC Charlotte's fringe benefits are divided into two categories:

  • Direct Charge Rates: Established and regulated by federal & state governmental agencies and private industry outside the University (FICA, FICA medical, Health Insurance, and Retirement). These expenses are direct charged to funds, including sponsored agreements. These rates are determined by the federal government (FICA & FICA medical) and State of North Carolina (health insurance & retirement) and are not negotiated with our cognizant agency because they are subject to the State of NC approvals by State Legislature.
  • Claims-Made Rates: Costs include worker’s compensation, unemployment compensation, terminal leave, severance pay, employee assistance program, employee tuition waivers, & short/long term disability.  Claims-made fringe benefits are benefits where the University only incurs costs when a claim is made.  The claims-made fringe benefit rates are set through a negotiation process with the federal government based on a proposal submitted annually.
