Human Resources to offer two new ways to access benefits

May 15, 2017
Share    

On June 26, Human Resources will introduce two new ways for benefits-eligible UGA employees to access their University System of Georgia health and group benefits:

• OneUSG Benefits Connect: This new, secure website will give benefits-eligible ­employees 24/7 access to their USG benefits-all year long.

• OneUSG Benefits Call Center: Benefits-eligible employees also will be able to get expert help with their benefits through the convenience of a toll-free telephone number.

The new website and call center will replace the MyBenefits@UGA system to enroll for benefits, update employee benefits due to life status changes and review current benefit elections. All university system institutions will use the OneUSG Benefits Connect system.

Even though benefits-eligible employees soon will have two new ways to access their benefits, benefits for 2017 are not changing. (As always, employees can modify their benefits when they experience a qualifying life status change, as well as during the next annual open enrollment period this fall.)

No further action by employees is required now. Later this spring, watch for more information on how employees will be able to reach the OneUSG Benefits Connect website and the OneUSG Benefits Call Center.

Employees who have questions now can contact the UGA HR office at benefits@uga.edu or 706-542-2222.
