Fiscal Year 2025 Estimated Benefit Rates Available

Preliminary Fringe Benefit Rates for fiscal year 2025 are available in SAGE, as well as in the Fringe Benefit Rates table.

These rates reflect estimated employee benefit costs to be incurred by the UW in fiscal year 2025.

Use these updated rates on multi-year sponsored program proposal budgets to best reflect anticipated costs.

Final 2025 benefit rates will be published by June 30, 2024. We will let you know when those final rates are available.

Apply updated benefit rates to a SAGE Budget in progress:

Go to the Budget Settings on the left navigation, expand the Data & Calculations section and “Refresh Benefit Rates”.

SAGE benefits rates selection radio button with "preliminary" selected SAGE refresh benefit rates image with instructions - refreshing benefit rates will replace all benefit rates with the most up-to-date values for each individual on your budget. Custom benefit rates you have added will be overridden.
