Wellbeing reimbursement programme

We want to help you and your family boost your physical, mental and financial wellbeing. To support you in this effort, we will reimburse you up to SG$828 in 2024 for eligible services and activities that directly relate to these three wellbeing pillars. Don’t get stuck in the same old routine. Try a new programme on us!

Who’s eligible

You are eligible to participate in the programme if you are a regular Adobe employee, which includes 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.

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

Benefit amount

You can be reimbursed up to SG$828 in 2024. This amount is considered taxable income for employees unless not required by local tax rules.

Benefit amounts vary by country, but are established based on US$600 with consideration for local currency exchange rates and market practices. For new employees, the annual wellbeing reimbursement amount will be prorated based on your start date.

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