FRINGE BENEFIT RATE

Policy -Fringe benefits are non-taxable contributions of an employer and include:
· Retirement Contribution
· Health Insurance
· Dental Insurance
· Life Insurance
· Medicare
· Social Security
1. A fringe benefit is a form of pay for the performance of services given by the provider of the benefit to the recipient of the benefit. For example, you provide an employee a fringe benefit when you allow the employee to use a business vehicle(like company car) to commute to and from work.

2. The above sentence is illinois state university's policies related to fringe benefit. That 6 items(retirement contribution,,,) are included in fringe benefit which employer would provide to employee.
And non taxible is not important to understand fringe benefit.

That source from http://www.policy.ilstu.edu/fiscal/fringe.html (Fringe Benefit Rate)

2. 'fringe benefit' means that an employment benefit given in addition to one's wages or salary.
and it is an incidental benefit awarded for certain types of employment (especially if it is regarded as a right); "a limousine is one of the fringe benefits of the job"

Actually "Fringe Benefit Caroline Cat" is a product name. I don't think this sentence means that the cat is a fringe benfit workers at a certain company get. I wonder who would even want a cat doll/toy as a fringe benefit anyway. The limousine sounds much better...

Hi Danny, (that is actually my name too!)
I was just wondering, when you use the word "dose", do you actually mean to say the word "those"?
