There really is no set formula for the calculation of fringe benefits as some companies offer no benefits at all and others offer what we refer to as Cadillac benefits which are the best of all worlds. However, let me give you a couple of examples you may run into. It is quite possible that many companies offer group life insurance and they typically do it as a function or a factor of salary. If your salary was $60,000, they may offer you $60,000 as a group life insurance benefit and then allow you to purchase multiples of $60,000 through payroll deduction. Another example is short-term and long-term disability. There are some companies that offer and pay for it fully while others ask the employee to share the expenses or pick them up entirely. As stated above, I've never seen two companies with identical benefits although some are very close. Hope this helps and good luck
