Explore the many financial benefits and money tools available from ESI EAP!
In year two of the pandemic, many people who call our EAP say they are struggling with financial stress and debt. Work absence, reduced work hours, medical bills, and job loss all are taking a toll. While the vaccine offers the potential for gradually working our way back to normalcy, many will still be belt-tightening until we are out of the woods. For ESI EAP employee members, we have several benefits and money tools to help you and your family address the economic challenges in the new year.

How much would you pay to get one-on-one financial coaching? With ESI EAP, it is just another benefit available to you and your family.
