Accident insurance

New employees:
If you do not enroll during the first 30 days of your employment, you must wait until the annual fall open enrollment period.

Accidents happen, and when they do, people are often surprised by unexpected expenses that medical plans do not cover. Aflac's accident insurance policy pays cash benefits in the event of certain accidental injuries or death. This optional plan provides protection around-the-clock for accidents.

Premiums are paid by employees via post-tax payroll deductions. Please note: all faculty and staff who paid on a ten-month payroll basis will have a triple deduction of premiums on their May payroll checks to pay for May, June, and July premiums.


New hires must enroll during their first 30 days of employment or wait until the next open enrollment period each fall. To enroll, use the MyBenefits@UGA system.
