Adoption assistance 

We provide adoption assistance for full-time employees who’ve worked with us for at least 12 consecutive months.

If you adopt a child under the age of 18 who’s not biologically related to you (or to your spouse, if you’re married), we’ll reimburse up to $4,000 for the cost of the adoption and legal fees for each child you adopt. You can receive reimbursement for up to two adoptions per family. The benefit doesn’t cover foster care, legal guardianship or adoption of a spouse’s child. 

Remember! If you’ve purchased short-term disability insurance, you’re also eligible for parental leave when you adopt a child.

Additional benefits for your family

Short-Term Disability (STD) coverage pays a portion of your salary if you’re sick or injured. It’s also the only way to receive maternity, parental or adoption leave benefits. See the Disability page for more details.

Note: Pre-existing condition provision for those newly enrolling in short-term disability If you’ve been diagnosed, treated or received medical advice for a condition within three months of your effective date on the plan (Oct. 1 - Dec. 31), that condition will be excluded for a period of 12 months. If you are pregnant at the time you enroll, your delivery and recovery will be excluded from the STD benefit for that coverage year. If you are currently enrolled in the plan, you are not subject to the provision.
