Coverage available through the Board of Regents is an indemnity plan, which allows employees to choose any dentist. After a $50 deductible is satisfied, the plan covers 80% of routine and major restorative dental services. Preventive dental services (cleanings) are covered at 100% and not subject to a deductible.

Georgia Law requires membership in the Teachers Retirement System of Georgia (TRS) or an Optional Retirement Plan (ORP) for all regular employees who are under age 60 and who work part-time or more. The ORP, however, is only available to faculty and certain key administrators.
The employees' contribution to TRS is 5.53% of gross salary. This contribution rate is applicable regardless of the source of salary. Employee contributions are deducted on a before-tax basis (before federal and state government income tax). FICA is paid on contributions as on any other salary. Federal and State of Georgia income tax is deferred until the account is withdrawn or retirement benefits are received.
Vesting in the TRS occurs at completion of ten years of service. Vesting for the ORP is immediate.
