How Adoption Assistance Works
When you are planning to add to your family, we want to help you pay some of your expenses. K-C will reimburse you for up to $5,000 per adoption, up to an annual maximum of $10,000.
If you decide to adopt a child, hold on to your receipts and documentation when you pay for adoption-related expenses. Eligible expenses include things like legal, travel, and agency fees, as well as temporary foster care.
Submit for Reimbursement
After following the adoption assistance criteria above, here’s how to submit for reimbursement.
1. Log in to your account at ConnectYourCare. If you haven’t set-up your direct deposit information, click Settings & Preferences then Bank Accounts.
2. After your direct deposit information is entered, on the homepage click Make a Payment then click Reimburse Myself.
3. For the service date, select the date the adoption was finalized and enter the information related to the adoption expense.
4. After entering the information related to your adoption expenses in Step 2, attach your receipts and/or other required documentation. To receive reimbursement, your documentation must be submitted within 180 days of course completion and before the annual deadline of December 20, 2019. If you submit documentation after the annual deadline, you'll be reimbursed from your 2020 allocation.
