Effective in 2024, you can be reimbursed for expenses related to financial wellbeing, pet care, and emergency preparedness.

We want to help you and your family maintain a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle. To support you in this effort, we will reimburse you up to Can$843 in 2023 for eligible services and activities that directly relate to your wellbeing. Don’t get stuck in the same old routine. Try a new program on us!

Who’s eligible

You are eligible to participate in the program if you are a regular Adobe employee or an intern. Regular employees include part-time employees who work the minimum hours required to be eligible for benefits. To be reimbursed, you must be employed by Adobe when you incur the eligible expenses and when you request reimbursement.

New employees, regardless of hire date, are eligible to receive the full annual wellness reimbursement amount.

Expenses incurred by your spouse, domestic partner, or children are also eligible.

Benefit amount

You can be reimbursed up to Can$843 in 2023. This amount is considered taxable income for employees unless not required by local tax rules.

The amount Adobe will reimburse may increase or decrease each year, based on the currency exchange rate with the U.S. dollar. The reimbursement limit is set each December for the following year.

The wellness reimbursement benefit does not roll over to the following year. You forfeit any amount you do not use by the end of the year.

What’s covered

Use your best judgment in determining what to submit through the wellness reimbursement program. First, ask yourself:

  • Is this item or service directly benefiting my or my family’s wellbeing?
  • Does this item assist me in relaxing, getting my heart rate up, being active, or learning a new activity directly related to my, or my family’s wellbeing?

For more guidance, review the following lists of examples.
