Overview

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides you and members of your household with confidential resources to address personal/work-related concerns. The EAP may also assist with legal/financial situations or help with work-life balance. EAP services are provided at no cost (to you and members of your household). You do not need to be enrolled in the State Group Health Insurance Program to use the EAP services.
