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.
