  • Work-Life Solutions

Too much to do, and too little time to get it all done? The work-life specialists through F/EAP can do the research for you, and provide qualified referrals and customized resources for child and elder care, moving, pet care, college planning, home repair, buying a car, planning an event, selling a house and more.

  • Legal Support

With F/EAP, you have an attorney "on call" whenever you have questions about legal matters. Speak with on-staff licensed attorneys about legal concerns such as divorce, custody, adoption, real estate, debt and bankruptcy, landlord/tenant issues, civil and criminal actions and more. If you require representation, you can be referred to a qualified attorney for a free 30-minute consultation and a 25 percent reduction in customary legal fees.


  • Financial Information

Everyone has financial questions. With your F/EAP benefit, you can get answers to your questions about budgeting, debt management, tax issues and other money concerns from on-staff CPAs, Certified Financial Planners® and other financial experts.

Who Will Know?

Our program is strictly confidential; no one will know if you use the F/EAP.  If you meet with a counselor, everything you discuss with your counselor will be kept confidential unless you give written permission to share information. If you contact F/EAP, your supervisor will not be told unless you want him or her informed. However, a supervisor may refer you to the F/EAP program if your job performance is affected. If you decide you want help, everything you discuss will still be confidential. However, by law, we are required to disclose to emergency personnel when there has been a disclosure of child or elder abuse, and/or threat of harm to oneself or others. Your job security or working conditions will not be jeopardized by a request for help through F/EAP. We do not record F/EAP visits in your personnel file, and they do not affect performance evaluations.

How Much Will This Cost?

F/EAP is a free benefit.

Who is eligible for F/EAP services?

All Dartmouth College active faculty and staff, and their household members are eligible.
