Work/Life Solutions

3 ways to get support when you need it

When you’re juggling work demands and your personal life, finding the right balance can be challenging. Sometimes you can use a hand. Whether you need a little help tackling personal problems, finding local resources, or just managing life’s hectic pace, we’ve got you covered. Your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is full of confidential resources — and it’s all available to you at no additional cost. Not even a copay.

1. EAP: Confidential assistance at no cost

Your EAP provides confidential resources for child care, financial or legal advice, and counseling for troubling personal concerns. If you need help finding local resources, the EAP can connect you with attorneys, financial professionals, or child/elder care facilities. If you are looking for guidance through personal problems, the EAP can refer you to local counselors who can see you in person (within the US) as well as to support groups and other behavioral health resources near you. No matter what help you’re seeking, these services are completely confidential. To reach out for EAP assistance, call the Aetna International Member Service Center at (855) 829-9558.

2. iConnectYou: Your EAP on the go

If you are outside of the United States when you need assistance, you can access your EAP through the iConnectYou app on your portable device or mobile phone. This app gives you secure, confidential access to clinical counselors and work-life experts. You’ll be able to connect to a professional by phone, instant message, text (SMS) or video chat.
