Beginning January 1, 2018, Washington University will offer an Adoption Benefit to eligible Washington University employees. This new benefit provides financial assistance for those adopting children up to $5,000 for “qualified adoption expenses.” There is no cost to you for coverage, and the benefit is provided to all full-time faculty or staff, non-union employees.
Most expenses directly related to an adoption are reimbursable.
These may include:
- Application fees
- Home study fees
- Agency and placement fees
- Legal and court fees
- Immigration, immunization and translation fees
- Transportation, meal and lodging fees
- Parent, child, and family adoption counseling.
Please refer to the policy and resource for details.
