About the USG Virtual Benefits Fair

Connect from anywhere and learn more about your University System of Georgia benefits! Like an in-person fair, you can check out booths in the Exhibit Hall for benefits information from our vendors, and visit the Auditorium to hear from the experts.  

During the week of October 19th, you can connect "live" each day to learn about your 2021 benefits. Take note of the agenda and special live presentations you won't want to miss - and chat 1:1 with representatives for any benefits questions that you have.
