Welcome to Adobe! We’re so glad you’ve arrived. You have some great benefits here—from help paying off student debt to ways to stay healthy—and we want you to take advantage of them.
We know most degree programs don’t include Employee Benefits 101, so we put together this page to explain the basics. To get all the details, you’ll want to explore the rest of this site.
The clock’s ticking
You have just 15 days from your hire date to enroll in most benefits, so get on it before it’s too late. (Your next chance will be during Open Enrollment in the fall.)
Enrolling in benefits
These are the benefits you need to choose within 15 days. If you don’t enroll, you’ll be enrolled automatically in Aetna HealthSave Basic medical, VSP Basic vision and Delta Dental—but those might not be the plans you want.
Even if you’re young and healthy, you need medical coverage. You’ll have free preventive care to help you stay healthy, and you’ll be covered for the unexpected accident or illness.
Adobe has great plans, of course, but if you’re covered on someone else’s plan, like your spouse/partner’s or your parents’ plan, you can opt out and get a credit. If you waive Adobe coverage, you’ll get $25 from Adobe every pay period.

The benefits enrollment site offers EMMA, an interactive benefits counselor with artificial intelligence to help you navigate your options and pick the best medical plan for you.
Health Savings Account
When you enroll in an Aetna plan, you’re eligible to open a Health Savings Account (HSA). An HSA lets you stash away pretax dollars to pay for health expenses now or save to use later—even if you leave Adobe. And, depending on the Aetna plan you pick, Adobe may also contribute to your HSA.
Dental and vision
Adobe offers a dental plan to keep your teeth in tip-top shape and your choice of two vision plans to keep you seeing clearly.
You also need to enroll within your first 15 days if you want these benefits:
- Life and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance: Adobe provides coverage of 3 times your salary, but you can choose to get more or less coverage.
- Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA): If you enroll in the Kaiser HMO medical plan, this FSA allows you to use pretax dollars to pay for eligible health expenses.
- Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA): With this FSA, you can use pretax dollars to pay for child or adult day care expenses.
- Legal insurance: Get help with legal matters with this prepaid plan.
Adobe offers a ton of free resources to help you stay healthy—physically and mentally. These benefits are available automatically, whenever you need them.
Take care of your emotional health
When you need a little extra support, the employee assistance program (EAP) provides you with confidential, short-term counseling services and additional work-life resources. You can get up to 10 free sessions each calendar year—in person or by video conference.

Financial health is an important part of a happy and successful life. That’s why Adobe offers a variety of programs to help you take care of money needs today and save for the future.
Claim your free money
When you put money in your 401(k), Adobe matches half of your contributions—up to 6% of your pay. Don’t miss out on this money.
Get the most out of the Adobe 401(k) plan
While retirement may be the furthest thing from your mind, starting to save for the future now through the 401(k) retirement plan lets you harness the power of compounding. This is finance-speak for how your account can grow over time and make a major difference in your financial wellbeing later.
Plus, when you contribute to the plan, so does Adobe. The company will match 50 cents for every dollar you contribute, up to 6% of your pay. As a new hire, you’re automatically enrolled in the plan to defer 6% of your pretax pay, saving you taxes and ensuring that you earn the full company match. You can contribute more, of course, but be sure to at least keep contributing the 6%—otherwise, you’re giving up free money!
Consolidate student loans
A recent survey showed that 70% of new college graduates have student loan debt. Discover a smart way to manage your debt with student loan refinancing through CommonBond. The program can simplify payments by combining multiple loans and quickly help you determine if you qualify for a better rate.
Talk to a money coach
Adobe offers you unlimited free money coaching. These one-on-one phone sessions are confidential and conducted with certified financial planners, tax experts and other specialists. Discuss subjects like debt, credit, spending, mortgages, loans, taxes, retirement, investing and more. Register at adobe.mysecureadvantage.com, or call My Secure Advantage at 888-724-2326 to get started.

Buy Adobe stock at a discount
Purchase Adobe stock at a discounted price that’s at least 15% below the fair market value through the employee stock purchase plan (ESPP). You can enroll twice each year, in June and December.
Support for learning
Get some of that tuition money back!
You read that right. You can get back some of the money you just spent for that hard-earned degree with Adobe’s graduate reimbursement program. Get a one-time reimbursement up to $10,000 for expenses related to an undergraduate degree, graduate degree or university program through an accredited institution within 12 months prior to your hire date. See the graduate reimbursement policy [PDF] and FAQs [PDF] for details, and be sure to apply within six months of starting at Adobe.
The Adobe Learning Fund will pay for you to keep learning and growing. Get up to $10,000 per year for academic degrees, credential programs and technical certifications through the education reimbursement program.
You can also get reimbursed for professional development—up to $1,000 per calendar year for short-term learning opportunities (e.g., conferences, webinars and online courses).
Be sure to check out these on-demand learning platforms for additional opportunities.
