Identity Theft Solutions

Identity protection available

Identity theft is the fastest growing financial crime in America, affecting thousands each year. In a matter of seconds, personal information such as a social security number, a credit card number, or an address can be stolen and used to obtain a new mortgage, line of credit, or additional credit cards. Georgia Tech offers access to an Identity Theft Solutions program that can help prevent theft and restore your identity, should it occur.

USG Accident

The USG Accident plan, offered by Voya Financial. Accident insurance pays you benefits for specific injuries and events resulting from a covered accident to offset out-of-pocket costs, such as deductible and copayments. The amounts paid depend on the type of injury and care received. Accident insurance is a limited benefit policy and it is NOT health insurance and does not satisfy the requirement of minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act.  

Active, benefits-eligible employees working 30+ hours per week can enroll, as well as spouses and children up to age 26. No medical questions or tests are required. 


USG Hospital Indemnity

The USG Hospital Indemnity plan, offered by Voya Financial, pays a daily benefit if you have a covered stay in a hospital, critical care unit or rehabilitation facility. Your benefit can help you with medical expenses (such as deductibles and copays), travel costs and everyday expenses like child care, utilities and groceries.
