    Employee Benefit Programs
    Many private and governmental employers offer adoption assistance and benefits. These might include financial reimbursement, paid and unpaid leave and resource and referral services. Please inquire with your Human Resources or benefits department.

    Family Medical Leave Act
    After you adopt, what about job security while staying home with your new child? The Family Medical Leave Act may provide the benefits you need. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 is a federal law that requires employers of more than 50 workers to give full-time employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for the birth or adoption of a child. One must have been employed for at least 12 months and worked at least 1250 hours during the previous 12 months. Your employer may have more generous benefits, but this offers minimum protection.

    Adoption Tax Credits
    Beginning in 2009, the credit allowed for an adoption of a child with special needs is $12,150 and the maximum credit allowed for other adoptions is the amount of qualified adoption expenses up to $12,150. The credit begins to phase out if you have modified adjusted gross income of $182,180 or more and is completely phased out if you have modified adjusted gross income of $222,180 or more. Please consult with your tax advisor or the IRS to determine your eligibility, as well as the many other tax related benefits associated with children.
