HR announces two new benefit programs

Wake Forest is pleased to announce a Back-up Care Advantage Program (beginning in early September) and new Group Long Term Care Insurance (effective December 1).

WFU has partnered with a nationally-recognized organization, Bright Horizons, for the Back-up Care Advantage Program. Full-time faculty and staff may use the program when regular child- or adult-care arrangements are unavailable. Registration and reservations are required before using the service. Details are available on the Back-up Care Advantage Program page on the HR website.

The Group Long Term Care Insurance is available to full- and part-time benefit-eligible faculty and staff at competitive group rates, through a partnership with Genworth Life Insurance Company. This benefit covers expenses for long term care services received at home, in the community, or in a nursing facility. Eligible colleagues may visit the Group Long Term Care Insurance page on the Human Resources website, look for information in the mail, and enroll Sept. 10 – Oct. 5, 2012.
