OneUSG Connect – Benefits: New Benefits Administration System Coming June 26!

We know that University System of Georgia benefits are important to you and your family. They offer protection, peace of mind and comfort — and you want to make the most of them.

On June 26, 2017, we are introducing two new ways to access your health and group benefits:

  • OneUSG Connect - Benefits: This new, secure website will provide you with 24/7 access to your USG benefits — all year long.
  • OneUSG Connect - Benefits Call Center: You will be able to get expert help with your benefits through the convenience of a toll-free telephone number.

The new website and call center will replace the way you currently enroll for benefits, update your benefits due to life status changes, and review your current benefit elections.

Even though you will soon have two new ways to access your benefits, your 2017 benefits are not changing. (As always, you can modify your benefits when you experience a qualifying life status change, as well as during the next annual Open Enrollment period in fall 2017.)
