What you need to know

PayPal’s family-centric benefits are designed to support you and your loved ones in every aspect of family life. Whether you’re planning to grow your family, looking for high-quality childcare or elder care, or navigating your child’s wellbeing, we have benefits and resources to meet your needs.

Family planning benefits to grow your family

Family planning is not only about starting a family, but also about making informed decisions regarding reproductive health and overall wellbeing. Meritain Health members have access to fertility benefits and adoption / surrogacy assistance through Progyny.

Visit Progyny (access code: PayPal) or call 833-838-5850. Progyny benefits are only available to Meritain Health members.

Child and elder care resources

Bright Horizons offers a range of short- and long-term child and elder care services for when you have a sick child, no-show babysitter, or an aging parent. They also offer access to high-quality tutoring and test preparation services, both online and in-person.

Go to Bright Horizons (username: PayPal; password: backup4u) or call 877-BH-CARES (877-242-2737).

RethinkCare for parental self-care

Parenting a child with learning or behavioral challenges, such as food aversion, learning disabilities, temper tantrums, and a lack of focus, can feel overwhelming. RethinkCare offers free research-based resources to help parents navigate these challenges and raise happy, healthy, and resilient children.

RethinkCare is available at no cost to you. To get started, download the RethinkCare app (App Store | Google Play), visit the website (access code: PayPal), or call 877-988-8871.

Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account

Dependent care can be expensive. But when you contribute to a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you use pre-tax dollars to handle eligible dependent care costs, including babysitters, daycare providers, and preschool fees.

This is a use-it-or-lose-it account, so if you’re enrolled in the Dependent Care FSA, remember to submit your eligible expenses for reimbursement.

Calm wellbeing app

Calm is the world’s No. 1 app for mental wellbeing, and you and your family members have unlimited and free access to it. Calm offers family-friendly features such as a Calm Kids section with sleep stories, lullabies, and soundscapes to promote better sleep. Plus, your kiddos can join mindful movement sessions led by beloved characters like PAW Patrol, Minions, and Transformers.

Calm has something for you, too. Lower stress levels, decrease anxiety, improve focus, and sleep better whether you have 30 seconds or 30 minutes. Listen to the Daily Calm with a new mindful theme every day, more than 100 guided meditations, Sleep Stories to help you drift into better sleep, and music to help you relax and reduce stress.
