OneUSG Connect - Staff Monthly Important Tips

Thursday, January 10, 2019

Note:  This communication was distributed on January 10, 2019 to all UGA staff who are paid monthly.

On December 16, 2018, the University of Georgia began using the OneUSG Connect system as our new human resources and payroll system. Here are some key points to consider:

  • Since our use of the new system corresponds with the start of a new calendar year, several things will affect the amount of your January paycheck, including:
    • Any changes you made to your benefits during open enrollment and any associated rate changes.
    • Any 2019 tax changes.
    • Any court-ordered deductions such as child support, tax levies, or garnishments will be reflected as one garnishment deduction.
    • Any merit raise that you received, effective on January 1. If you received a merit raise, we encourage you to login to the new system and view your Compensation History to verify that your merit increase is accurately reflected; if you feel that this is not accurately reflected, please bring it to the attention of your supervisor. 
  • When you see your University System of Georgia (USG) job code and title in the new system, it may be different from your official UGA job title (or working title). Please do not be concerned. As a part of this transition to a USG-wide payroll system, each employee has been assigned a USG job category. Your official UGA job title (or working title) and supervisor have not changed and can be verified by checking your directory entry at

Thank you for your attention to this matter and for your patience during this transition. Please contact us at or 706-542-0202 if you have questions or need assistance using the new system.
