Adoption Assistance Program
Hertz cares about you and your family, which is why we offer financial support for employees who adopt a child. Keep reading for an overview of the policy. For full information, you can read the policy here. You can also review the FAQs.
The Program offers a maximum benefit of $5,000 per eligible child (up to two children per employee). If you adopt a child and your situation qualifies for benefits, the Program reimburses you for a portion of your eligible expenses once the adoption is legally final.
You're eligible for the Adoption Assistance Program if you're an eligible full-time regular (non-casual and non-temporary) employee and have worked at Hertz for 12 continuous months.
Eligible expenses include:
- Adoption fees
- Attorney fees
- Court costs
- Travel expenses (including meals and lodging) while away from home
- Other reasonable and necessary expenses directly related to the legal adoption of a child (e.g., uninsured medical expenses for the adopted child and/or birth mother, immigration and naturalization fees, and immunization and translation fees).
Any child under age 18 who is not a blood relative (including a foster child) or previously adopted child of you or your spouse. If the child turns 18 during the year, the child is eligible for the part of the year he or she is under age 18 (unless the child is physically or mentally incapable of self-care).
Receiving Reimbursement and Filing a Claim
To receive reimbursement, you must pay for any qualified expenses and save your receipts. Then you must file a claim within 90 days of the date the adoption is legal. You can access the claim form on the Hertz Intranet here.
