On June 26, 2017, the University System of Georgia will introduce two new ways to access and manage your benefits:
- OneUSG Connect - Benefits: A secure website will provide you 24/7 access to your health and group benefits.
- OneUSG Connect - Benefits Call Center (in addition to your on-campus benefit counselor and support from Georgia Tech Human Resources)
Your benefits are not changing, your enrollment experience is just being enhanced! We will regularly be providing new information. Please check back for updates.
Last Update: June 20, 2017
Employees Paid Biweekly WITH Short- or Long-term Disability or Supplemental Life Insurance
As a biweekly employee, you receive 26 paychecks per year with these benefits charged equally to each paycheck. Georgia Tech Human Resources is aligning with OneUSG Connect in how it will charge for these benefits (short- or long-term disability or supplemental life insurance) going forward. You will continue to receive 26 paychecks, but you will only be charged for these three benefits in 24 paychecks.
(Twice a year you receive three paychecks a month. You will not be charged for these benefits in this third paycheck of a month—once in December 2017 and once in June 2018.)
As a result, you will notice a small increase in the amount charged for these benefits each month to compensate for the two paychecks you are not charged. If you have more questions about this change, please contact email@example.com.
You will be able to start and stop contributions in the OneUSG Connect system beginning June 26. However, if you want to make a lump sum contribution please complete this form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. In 2018, all changes (including lump sums) to HSA contributions will be made through OneUSG Connect. Academic Faculty with summer pay will not have HSA deductions in July.
Benefit Deductions Codes in Paycheck
Your paycheck will look a little different after July 1. If enrolled in benefits, you will see two different sets of deductions. One set will refer to your benefit deductions from Jan. 1 to June 30, 2017; the other set will apply to benefits deductions between July 1 and Dec. 31, 2017. Each set will have different Year-to-Date totals but you will only have one set of deductions per paycheck.
Benefit Changes between May 30 — June 19
Employees who made changes with the Georgia Tech Human Resources on or after May 30 will not see their enrollment updated in OneUSG Connect until June 30. However, benefit enrollments will not be affected. Contact email@example.com if you have questions.
