Contribution Rates

Below are the employer contribution rates for the current fiscal year and the past five fiscal years.


If you are a SAM II employer, contributions occur automatically as a percentage of payroll and no additional action is required of you.

If you are a Non-SAM II employer, for each July 1 payroll, please review and adjust contributions as needed (for the benefits applicable to your agency).
