Family-friendly benefits for all types of families

What you need to know

We understand that families form in many different ways, which is why we offer several benefit options to new parents—and “pawrents”—like Paid Parental Leave, adoption assistance, and pet insurance.

Paid Parental Leave 

Our Paid Parental Leave program allows moms and dads to take up to two fully paid weeks away from work to care for and bond with your new child. You may take this benefit in addition to other leave programs to maximize this special time with your newest family member. 

Adoption Assistance

Adding a new member to your family can be an emotional and financially significant decision. At BAE Systems, we believe that cost should not be a barrier to love, which is why we have an adoption assistance program. As an eligible employee, you can seek up to $4,000 in reimbursement for qualifying expenses, including adoption agency fees, legal and court fees, and adoption-related travel expenses. 

Family-friendly medical plans

Don’t forget to include your newest family member in your medical plan coverage. Outside of Annual Enrollment, you can make changes to your health and welfare elections when you have a qualified life event, which includes having or adopting a child. For more details or to make changes, visit the Life/Events section on BenefitsNavigator anytime, or call the BAE Systems Benefit Center at 1-888-900-4223, 8 a.m.–8 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.

Pet Insurance 

In addition to covering human family members, we also offer health insurance for furry, feathered, and scaly loved ones. Protect your pet’s health with flexible plans through Nationwide. Nationwide’s plans cover cats, dogs, birds, and exotic pets. Costs vary depending on type and age of your pet.
