Employee and family assistance programs for group benefits plans

Help plan members thrive with employee assistance programs

An Employee and Family Assistance Program provides confidential support for plan members when they need access to expert resources, helping to reduce absenteeism and foster productivity.

Short-term counseling in person, over the telephone or online can:

  • Give plan members and family members a chance to talk through their challenges
  • Prevent an emerging problem from becoming a distraction at work
  • Build problem-solving, coping and resiliency skills
