2020
Employee’s Withholding Certificate
Department of the Treasury
Internal Revenue Service
Complete Form W-4 so that your employer can withhold the correct federal income tax from your pay.
Give Form W-4 to your employer.
Your withholding is subject to review by the IRS.
OMB No. 1545-0074
Step 1:
Enter
Personal
Information
(a) First name and middle initial Last name
Address
City or town, state, and ZIP code
(b) Social security number
Does your name match the
name on your social security
card? If not, to ensure you get
credit for your earnings, contact
SSA at 800-772-1213 or go to
www.ssa.gov.
(c)
Single or Married filing separately
Married filing jointly (or Qualifying widow(er))
Head of household (Check only if you’re unmarried and pay more than half the costs of keeping up a home for yourself and a qualifying individual.)
Complete Steps 2–4 ONLY if they apply to you; otherwise, skip to Step 5. See page 2 for more information on each step, who can
claim exemption from withholding, when to use the online estimator, and privacy.
Step 2:
Multiple Jobs
or Spouse
Works
Complete this step if you (1) hold more than one job at a time, or (2) are married filing jointly and your spouse
also works. The correct amount of withholding depends on income earned from all of these jobs.
Do only one of the following.
(a) Use the estimator at www.irs.gov/W4App for most accurate withholding for this step (and Steps 3–4); or
(b)
Use the Multiple Jobs Worksheet on page 3 and enter the result in Step 4(c) below for roughly accurate withholding; or
(c)
If there are only two jobs total, you may check this box. Do the same on Form W-4 for the other job. This option
is accurate for jobs with similar pay; otherwise, more tax than necessary may be withheld . . . . .
TIP: To be accurate, submit a 2020 Form W-4 for all other jobs. If you (or your spouse) have self-employment
income, including as an independent contractor, use the estimator.
Complete Steps 3–4(b) on Form W-4 for only ONE of these jobs. Leave those steps blank for the other jobs. (Your withholding will
be most accurate if you complete Steps 3–4(b) on the Form W-4 for the highest paying job.)
Step 3:
Claim
Dependents
If your income will be $200,000 or less ($400,000 or less if married filing jointly):
Multiply the number of qualifying children under age 17 by $2,000
$
Multiply the number of other dependents
by $500 . . . .
$
Add the amounts above and enter the total here . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Step 4
(optional):
Other
Adjustments
(a)
Other income (not from jobs). If you want tax withheld for other income you expect
this year that won’t have withholding, enter the amount of other income here. This may
include interest, dividends, and retirement income . . . . . . . . . . . .
4(a) $
(b) Deductions. If you expect to claim deductions other than the standard deduction

Jeanne Clery Act
Crime Statistics and Report Training for Campus Security Authorities
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law, originally
known as the Campus Security Act that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about
crime on and around their campuses. The directly relates to participation in federal student financial aid programs, therefore
it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. It is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education
(DOE).
The “Clery Act” is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Ann Clery who was raped and murdered
while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986. Jeanne’s parents discovered that students hadn’t been told about 38
violent crimes on the campus in the three years before her murder. They joined with other campus crime victims and persuaded
Congress to enact this law, which was originally known as the “Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990”. The law
was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights, and
was amended again in 1998 to expand the reporting requirements. The 1998 amendments also formally named the law in
memory of Jeanne Clery.
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for “Campus Security Authority.” CSA’s are usually found in departments responsible for, but not limited to, student
and campus activities, safety/security, discipline, housing, human resources, or judicial proceedings. This designation also
includes any individual who has been specified by ASUPD to receive and report offenses. CSA’s are responsible for reporting
the number of crimes and incidents as described in the Clery Act that occur in their department to the ASU Police Department.
These numbers are then included in the federally-mandated Clery Report, which is distributed every year by October 1st.
How do I know what to report?
You must report all allegations of crimes that you determine are made in good faith as a statistic that will be included in the
Annual Security Report. Although law enforcement personnel may conclude after further investigation that some allegations
are not substantiated by the facts or the law, you must report information that is a reported to you. Neither a formal police
report nor an investigation is needed in order for a crime report to be included in these statistics. Your responsibility is to
provide as accurate and complete a description as possible of what happened, including the location and whether the victim
or alleged perpetrator was a student.
What crimes must I report?
The Annual Security Report must include statistics on nine types of crime:
Criminal Homicide - (A) Murder and Non- Negligent Manslaughter, and (B) Negligent Manslaughter;
Sex Offenses - (A) Forcible Sex Offenses and (B) Non-Forcible Sex Offenses;
Robbery;
Aggravated Assault;
Burglary;
Motor Vehicle Theft;
Arson;
Arrests and Disciplinary Referrals for liquor law violations, drug law violations, and illegal weapons possession; and

Hate Crimes/bias.
Campus Police will ensure that crimes are properly classified.
Who must report campus crime?
In addition to the Police Department, Campus Security Authorities must report any crimes or incidents that may be crimes that
are reported to them. You are a Campus Security Authority if you fit any the following descriptions: 1. Individuals with Campus
Security responsibility staff assigned to security functions. 2. Designated Individuals any individual or organization identified
on the campus as Clery Coordinator to which crimes must be reported.
If you are a pastoral counselor or professional counselor, use your judgement. When appropriate, you may tell a person you
are counseling about campus procedures for reporting crimes and confidentially for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime
statistics report even if the person does not want to press charges or participate in an investigation. Procedures for reporting
crimes confidentially must be included in the Annual Safety and Fire Report.
What about timely warnings?
Immediate reporting of crimes allows the police to act in a timely fashion to investigate or otherwise address alleged crimes
that may present a clear danger to the campus community. All you need do is report the crime by calling the police. The ASU
Police Department is responsible for gathering the data for all crimes reported, and soliciting information from local police
agencies concerning crimes reported to them.
A copy of the Annual Safety and Fire Report and Compliance Statement can be found on the ASU website at www.asurams.edu.

Sgt. LaShawnda Ethridge
Phone: (229) 894-0606
Lashawnda.ethridge@asurams.edu
Officials with Significant Responsibility for Student and Campus Activities campus officials who manage or otherwise oversee
students and campus activities, for example, staff responsible for campus student housing, a student center, or student extra-
curricular activities; a director of athletics or a team coach; faculty advisors to a student groups; staff responsible for student
discipline; campus judicial staff. Each campus must identify these individuals. The Clery Coordinator is responsible for ensuring
that they are aware of their responsibilities and report periodically. If you are a Campus Security Authority you must report

What about confidentiality?
The crime statistics included in the Annual Security Report do not include any information that would identify the victim or the
person accused of committing the crime. Your report to the Clery Coordinator should not include personally identifying
information. Make sure you advise the student that you will not release that information but that you are obligated to report
the alleged criminal conduct.

New Health Insurance Marketplace Coverage
Affordable Care Act
Under the Affordable Care Act, the University System of Georgia, as your employer, is required to provide you this
notice.
If you have questions about the Health Insurance Marketplace, please visit the Federal Health Insurance
Marketplace website at https://www.healthcare.gov/families/. The State of Georgia has opted not to operate a
Health Insurance Marketplace and therefore, individuals in Georgia will use the federal Health Insurance
Marketplace to enroll in coverage.
The University System of Georgia’s Consumer Choice H.S.A. plan meets the Affordability Requirement under the
Affordable Care Act. Therefore, in general, University System of Georgia employees who are eligible for health
insurance will not be eligible for a tax credit in 2014 through the Health Insurance Marketplace (or Exchanges)
created under the Affordable Care Act.
I have read and understand that the University System of Georgia offer’s the Consumer Choice H.S.A. plan, which
meets the affordability requirement under the Affordable Care Act. I also understand that if I opt out of
enrollment into this plan at the time of hire, that I will be ineligible for any tax credit through the Marketplace. I
also forfeit my opportunity to enroll into a healthcare plan with Albany State University and must wait until Open
Enrollment to elect coverage, where coverage will not take effect until January 1
st
of the following year.
OneUSG Connect Benefits
Benefits Enrollment
I acknowledge and understand that I am responsible for logging into the OneUSG
Connect Benefits Portal within the OneUSG Connect Self-Service System and
enrolling into my health benefits the first week of hire.
I understand that I will receive an e-mail giving me instructions on how to enroll
into my health benefit plan from Human Resources.
I understand that my enrollment must take place within the first week of hire and
I will notify Human Resources upon completion of my enrollment.
