Wellbeing reimbursement program

We want to help you and your family boost your physical, mental and financial wellbeing. To support you in this effort, Adobe will reimburse you up to $600 per year for eligible services and activities that directly relate to these three wellbeing pillars.


Who’s eligible

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

New employees are eligible to receive a prorated portion of the annual wellbeing reimbursement amount.

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

Benefit amount

You can be reimbursed up to $600 per calendar year.

New employees are eligible to receive a prorated amount based on their month of hire ($600 if hired in January, $550 if hired in February, $500 if hired in March, etc.)

Interns are eligible to receive up to $300 for the duration of their internship.

These amounts are considered taxable income unless not required by local tax rules.

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.

What’s covered

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

  • Does this item or service enable me, my immediate family, or my pets to engage in activities that benefit our physical, mental or financial wellbeing?
  • If my manager had to approve this item, would they agree that it supports my wellbeing?
  • Is this item on the “Not Eligible” list?
