Employee Assistance Program and WorkLife Services Benefits

VCSSFA offers its Member districts Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and WorkLife Services Benefits. These programs are designed to provide confidential  support for those struggling with things such as stress at work, those who need financial or legal advice, or are coping with grief at the loss of a loved one. These programs are available 24-7.

VCSSFA members who need assistance with substance abuse or mental illness, workplace conflicts, child or elder care can call VCSSFA's direct line to care at 888-444-8624. Use the access code "CSEBO" and receive immediate assistance at no cost for referrals or seeing a clinician within the Optum network. Employees and dependents are eligible to receive 5 face-to-face visits per problem, per year, at no cost. If you'd like to speak with an expert for financial or legal assistance, there's no cost for the initial consultation. Subsequent legal assistance will be available at a 25% discount.
