Adoption Assistance Program

Supporting families, Loyola’s adoption assistance benefit is provided to you at no cost. This program will reimburse you at 90% for covered expenses up to a maximum of $5,000 (or $6,000 if the child has special needs). Expenses will only be paid for the adoption of children under the age of 18 or who are physically or mentally incapable of caring for themselves.

Covered expenses (which must be reasonable and necessary) include:

Limitations: Benefits are not payable for the adoption of stepchildren or for pre-natal or maternity costs of the birth mother of the adoptive child.

Tax considerations: the adoption assistance benefit is not subject to federal or Illinois state tax withholding, but is subject to FICA withholding tax.
