Adopting a child is a special and exciting moment in your life and Toys”R”Us wants to better support you in that journey.  The Adoption Assistance Program falls under the Team Members First pillar of “Caring For Your Family” and we’re excited to announce that this program will now provide reimbursement for up to $6,000 worth of covered expenses, per child, for up to two children.  That’s up from $3,000!

So what can that $6,000 be used towards?  You can reimburse yourself for licensed adoption agency and placement fees (including foreign adoption), legal fees, court fees, transportation and lodging costs to bring the child to the adoptive parents and immigration, immunization and translation fees.  Be sure to check out the Adoption Assistance page for more details, including a listing of exclusions and eligibility info.

To take advantage of this great benefit, all you would need to do is complete an Adoption Assistance Claim Form once the adoption is final and return to the Benefits Team (One Geoffrey Way, Wayne, NJ 07470 Attn: Rahnuma Ahmed), along with itemized receipts for expenses and proof of the adoption.

And if you have any questions, be sure to reach out to your Human Resources Business Partner.
