Information on benefits and an opportunity to talk with a benefits counselor is provided during new employee orientation. Enrollment information for new employees is also available online. If you need advice, benefits counselors are available to assist you. You can schedule an appointment or submit questions online here.
- Retirement. Participation in a retirement plan is mandatory for all employees (including postdocs) and the plan selection can never be changed. If you do not select a retirement plan within 60 days of hire, the system will automatically default you to the Teachers Retirement System of Georgia (TRS), which takes 10 years to vest.
- Medical and Other Benefits. Participation is optional, and you must enroll within 30 days of hire.
