OneBeacon's® adoption assistance benefits are available to all full-time employees who have completed at least one year of service with the company. You can be reimbursed up to $5,000 for expenses associated with the adoption of a child– including adoption agency fees, legal fees, transportation and lodging expenses, immigration and translation fees, legal fees and court costs.

A form to claim reimbursement for adoption expenses can be obtained from the Human Resources Service Center (HRSC) or downloaded from the OneBeacon Portal. As a reminder, you would also be eligible for a leave of absence of up to 12 weeks under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) for the adoption of a child.

The Employee Assistance Program offers helpful counseling with the process, discounted legal services, and dependent-care referrals.
