Financial benefits take different forms, follow up with your employer for your specific benefits. Some employers provide a lump sum payment for an adoption, usually between $1,000 and $15,000. Other employers pay certain fees related to an adoption. Still others partially reimburse employees for expenses. Typical reimbursement plans cover 80 percent of certain itemized expenses up to an established ceiling ($4,000 on average). Most frequently, employer-provided assistance covers:

  • Public or private agency fees
  • Court costs
  • Legal fees
  • Foreign adoption fees
  • Medical costs
