Retirement Plans Overview

Financial Coaching and Retirement Advice

Meet with CAPTRUST to help select a retirement plan or see if you are on track to achieve your financial goals.

Saving for Your Future

USG helps you save now so your money can grow over time. First, you and USG contribute to the TRS, ORP or ERS. Next, you can save more in the 403(b) and/or 457(b) Plans. Learn more by attending USG’s planned events and webinars.

Mandatory Retirement Plans

If you work 20 hours or more per week, you must be enrolled in one of USG’s mandatory retirement plans: The Teachers Retirement System of Georgia (TRS) Plan or the Optional Retirement Plan (ORP). Your eligibility for these plans depends on your employment status (exempt or nonexempt) and your past employment history. 

If you are a vested member of the Employees’ Retirement System of Georgia (ERS) Plan, you can continue your participation. For additional questions regarding your enrollment in ERS, reach out to your HR/Benefits department for further assistance.

Ways to Save More

USG also offers additional ways to save more for your retirement. You can contribute to the 403(b) Plan, the 457(b) Plan or both.
