Estimate a new employee's benefits cost

If your benefits are managed by Gusto and you have a new employee joining your team or you’re about to extend an offer, you can get an estimate of their monthly benefits cost from your Gusto admin account. Sign into your account and follow these steps:

  1. Click the Benefits tab.
  2. Click Estimate New Hire Cost.  
  3. Enter the employee’s personal information.
    • First name
    • Last name
    • Birthday
  4. Click Get Estimate.

Based on the employee’s date of birth, we’ll estimate their cost. The summary will provide a range of costs based on the various benefits and plans you offer, and whether or not the employee has dependents.

If you’d like to see the premiums of each plan, click Download Cost Breakdown (PDF). The PDF will break down the employee, spouse, and child cost for each plan that you offer.

 Assumptions & methodology:  Estimated costs are used for illustrative purposes only. Actual costs will vary.  The estimated cost assumes that any child dependent is younger that 18 and any spouse is the same age as the employee.
