Employee Assistance Program

St. Jude offers employees an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), which is a professional counseling service, free of charge.

Administered by Methodist, the EAP provides confidential counseling when dealing with difficult personal and emotional problems. Examples of problems with which the EAP can help:

Eligible dependents (legal spouses and legally dependent children up to age 19 or to age 25 if the child is enrolled as a fulltime student in college) may also use the EAP. There is no age limit for a child who is permanently mentally or physically disabled who is also a legal dependent.

You are not required to be enrolled in any other St. Jude benefit plan (including the medical plan) to take advantage of the EAP. You or your eligible family members can make an appointment by calling 901-683-5658 or toll free (if outside of Memphis) at 1-800-880-5658.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

Flexible spending accounts help you pay for certain health care and dependent care expenses that are not covered by the medical, dental or vision plans—copays, coinsurance and amounts above benefit maximums to name a few. Likewise, many people have regular daycare expenses for dependent children.

Both the health care and dependent care spending accounts are administered by Principal Financial Group. These flexible spending accounts provide tax advantages by letting you set aside pre-tax dollars to pay certain health care and dependent care expenses.
