Composite Benefit Rates (CBRs)

With the implementation of UCPath on June 1, 2020, UCSF will transition to a new method of charging for the employer contributions to employee benefits.

Instead of charging departments and funds based on the actual individual benefits costs of each employee, UCSF will begin charging a fixed percentage of an employee’s salary.  Percentages will be determined by employee groups (i.e. faculty versus staff versus postdoctoral scholars). These percentages by employee group are commonly referred to as Composite Benefit Rates (CBRs).
