Are retirees eligible for the Employee Assistance Program?

EAP services are available to those enrolled in medical insurance as well as benefits eligible (not necessarily enrolled) dependents of employees who are enrolled in medical insurance. The EAP can provide support and resources for:

  • Family and relationships
  • Stress
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Dealing with addiction
  • Legal and financial issues
  • Child and elder care
  • Difficulties and conflicts
  • Grief and loss
  • Work/life balance

They can even help you find a network provider, a plumber who works nights, find theater tickets, all-night pharmacies and so much more.

You and your eligible dependents may receive up to five counseling sessions per episode at no cost to you.
