Adoption assistance

Administered by WEX Health

UC supports eligible faculty and staff who wish to expand their immediate families through adoption. UC’s Adoption Assistance Plan, administered by WEX Health, provides financial support by reimbursing you for up to $5,000 of eligible expenses per adoption.

How the plan works

Employees who are eligible for benefits automatically qualify to participate. You don’t need to enroll.

Keep receipts and other documentation for your expenses as you go through the adoption process. After the adoption is legally finalized, you may request reimbursement for up to $5,000 of qualified expenses per adoption. 

The reimbursement benefit is available for up to two adoptions, with a maximum of $10,000 in benefits in the employee’s lifetime. If both adoptive parents work for UC, the maximum combined reimbursement benefit for the costs of adopting one child is $5,000, or $10,000 for the costs of adopting two children.
