Adoption Assistance Program
The Firm is pleased to support parents welcoming an adopted child into the family. The Adoption Assistance Program reimburses certain qualified adoption-related expenses for eligible employees, and is available in addition to other benefits and resources such as Paid Parental Leave and back-up day care.
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
- For more information, see the Adoption Benefits Summary Plan Description.
Surrogacy Assistance Program
Recognizing that there are many ways to grow your family, the Firm has introduced the Surrogacy Assistance Program to reimburse employees up to $10,000 of surrogacy-related medical expenses per child.
HOW IT WORKS
Employees who have completed a qualifying surrogacy and submit a Surrogacy Assistance Program Application for Reimbursement within six months following the birth of the child (and before an employment termination date, if applicable) are eligible to receive a lump-sum payment up to $10,000 per child, to pay for certain surrogacy-related expenses. Because surrogacy laws vary state-by-state, eligible surrogacy-related expenses will be limited to qualifying medical expenses paid on behalf of the surrogate mother.
Note for parents intending to adopt a child born via surrogacy: If you plan to legally adopt the child born of a surrogate mother, you will be eligible for one $10,000 reimbursement.
Additional family planning benefits include:
- Paid Parental Leave Checklist
- Maternity Support Programs
- Newborn care, CPR, Care Seat Safety and Lactation Classes
- Lamaze Classes
