Let’s Make it Official

A Sound Investment

Your employer contribution rate is the percentage of payroll your organization is required to contribute to fund future benefits for your current employees, former employees and retirees.

  • Each year, independent actuaries estimate the benefits you will pay to your employees and how much you need to invest to pay for those benefits.
  • Your rate will change every year based on changes in your workforce and investment earnings.
  • You’ll review your benefits levels each year and can make adjustments based on your workforce needs and budget.
