Standard Benefit Rate


In 1998, the University established a standard benefit rate mechanism whereby the employer benefit costs are accumulated centrally and charged back to divisions, research grants and ancillary operations through a standard benefit rate (SBR).

The SBR is calculated as a percentage of salary, based on actual employer benefits costs (which includes, legislative benefits, pension plan current service contributions, and other healthcare related benefits).

The table below shows the progression of the SBR:

Year Appointed Staff Rates Non-appointed Staff Rates
2017-18 24.00% * 10.00%
2016-17 24.75% * 10.00%
2015-16 24.75% * 10.00%
2014-15 24.75% * 10.00%
2013-14 24.75% * 10.00%
2012-13 24.75% * 10.00%
2011-12 24.25% * 10.00%
2010-11 23.75% * 10.00%
