Which fringe benefits can be charged to a grant account and when are they charged?

Fringe benefit employer costs are charged to a grant account during each payroll process for each employee paid by a grant. Fringe benefit employer costs are only charged for the following benefits:

Benefit Banner Code(s)
SURS 80, 81, 82
FICA 015
Medicare 020
Life insurance 320
Health insurance 112, 113, 122, 123, 132, 133, 142, 143, 152, 153, 162, 163
Dental insurance 102 or 103

The amount depends on the labor percentage the employee is currently charged to the grant and which benefits and benefit plan level the employee has. The percentage charged will be the same as the labor distribution percentage charged to the grant account displayed on the Employment Contact or Banner screen NBAJOBS, tab Job Labor Distribution.

If a retro-active Change of Assignment is sent to Payroll to change the distribution of past payrolls, the process will reverse out the original transaction and calculate the new assignment. You will see these changes on the Redistribution Payroll Certification with each changed payroll identified.
