Your benefits offer you and your dependents confidential support, resources and information for personal and work-life issues. These services are part of your benefits package and are available at no additional cost to you.
Your Resources include:
EAP for Confidential Counseling
Life can be stressful. Your EAP is designed to provide short-term counseling services for you and your dependents to help you handle concerns constructively, before they become major issues. Call anytime about concerns such as marital, relationship and family problems; stress, anxiety and depression; grief and loss, job pressures and substance abuse.
Too much to do, and too little time to get it all done? The work-life specialists at GuidanceResources® can do the research for you, and provide qualified referrals and customized resources for child and elder care, moving, pet care, college planning, home repair, buying a car, planning an event, selling a house and more.
With GuidanceResources®, you have an attorney “on call” whenever you have questions about legal matters. Speak with on-staff licensed attorneys about legal concerns such as divorce, custody, adoption, real estate, debt and bankruptcy, landlord/tenant issues, civil and criminal actions and more. If you require representation, you can be referred to a qualified attorney for a free 60-minute consultation and a 25 percent reduction in customary legal fees.
Everyone has financial questions. With your GuidanceResources® benefit, you can get answers to your questions about budgeting, debt management, tax issues and other money concerns from on-staff CPAs, Certified Financial Planners® and other financial experts, simply by calling your toll-free number.
HealthyGuidance® helps you make positive lifestyle changes. You and your spouse or domestic partner can get the tools and support you need to make smarter decisions about your health.
