Retiree Healthcare Contribution
For employees hired on or after January 1, 2013, the Employer Contribution for healthcare will be based on years of service with the University System of Georgia. Click below to see a chart of the contributions.
Pre-65 Retirees that qualify as a USG retiree, will continue their current USG medical, dental, vision and life insurance in retirement. If you have questions about whether you qualify, then please contact your local HR office.
Remember to enroll in Medicare A & B at least 60-90 days before your 65th birthday to qualify to continue USG healthcare.
If you are retired and you are 65 and older, you must be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B. Upon retirement, Medicare will become primary and you must select a Medicare Supplement, Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (PDP), or Medicare Advantage plan through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange. USG provides annual funding in a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) which can be used to reimburse you for eligible premiums and expenses, including most prescription drugs and out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, Medicare Supplemental premiums and vision/dental premiums. USG is pleased to contribute up to $2,736 to your HRA in 2021.
