To better support parents welcoming an adopted child into the family, the Firm will increase the Adoption Assistance Program benefit from $5,000 per adopted child (or $6,000 when adopting a child with special needs) to $10,000 reimbursement per adopted child for adoption-related expenses.
HOW IT WORKS
Employees who have completed a qualifying adoption and submit an Adoption Assistance Program Application for Reimbursement within six months following the date the adoption is finalized (and before an employment termination date, if applicable) are eligible to receive a lump-sum payment up to $10,000 per adopted child to pay for certain adoption-related expenses. Reasonable and necessary qualified adoption-related expenses include, but are not limited to:
ATTORNEY FEES AND COURT COSTS
TRAVEL EXPENSES, INCLUDING LODGING AND MEALS WHILE AWAY FROM HOME
