Your health and welfare benefits are provided through the University System of Georgia, which includes healthcare, dental, vision, and retirement plan options. Georgia Tech is a member of the USG, the state agency governing all 28 public institutions in Georgia. USG dictates general policy, administers benefits, and supplements funding for the state institutions. It is governed by the Board of Regents (BOR).
Step 1. Review your resources
As a Georgia Institution, Georgia Tech is one of the 28 schools under the University System of Georgia (USG) umbrella. Your health and welfare benefits are provided through USG, which includes healthcare, dental, vision, and retirement plan options for employees working 30 hours per week or more on a regular basis. All USG employees are covered by workers’ compensation, and certain employees also qualify for Social Security participation.
Step 2. Check Your Credentials
Ensure your Georgia Tech account has been given access. Check with your hiring manager if you have questions.
