Employee Assistance Fund

Supporting employees when they need it most

The Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) offers employees in the United States assistance during pivotal moments. When the unexpected happens – a large-scale disaster or a personal hardship – the Employee Assistance Fund may be available to provide financial support. Applications are accepted year-round.

The EAF portal and My Maximus will request your Maximus login credentials with Azure Multifactor Authentication (MFA). Please contact the Maximus IT Help Desk for step-by-step login guidance or to verify that you have a working Azure token on your personal device.

Short-term assistance

The Employee Assistance Fund provides short-term assistance with basic living expenses in response to financial hardship caused by large-scale disasters, personal disasters, or personal hardships as a result of a family emergency or other sudden, severe, overwhelming, or unexpected event.

America’s Charities manages the grant processing and all administrative aspects of the EAF on behalf of Maximus, including final determinations on the amount of funding relief to be granted. This ensures confidentiality and impartial decision-making. America’s Charities also has expertise on this subject matter to make sound decisions on qualifying events. As a charitable program, income eligibility guidelines may apply.
