Reimbursement Guidelines Available for Postdoctoral Scholar Qualifying Childcare Expenses

Effective October 1, 2023, members of the Postdoctoral Scholars Unit (PX) systemwide bargaining unit are eligible for reimbursement of up to $2,500 annually for qualifying childcare expenses. Details about this benefit, eligibility, submission requirements, and the reimbursement process are available in a new resource, Childcare Benefits for Postdoctoral Scholars (opens in new window) on the UCSF Human Resources website.

Departments are responsible for tracking childcare related expenses and ensuring employees do not exceed annual reimbursement levels provided for in the contract. While all eligible employees shall receive a minimum of $2,500 annually, some external grant or fellowship funding sources provide more funding for childcare-related expenses. Department administrators should review updated guidelines for recording reimbursement expenses on the Controller’s Office website.
