What are WorkLife services?
Consultation and referrals for a wide range of WorkLife referrals are available through the EAP. We can help you find real solutions for child care, elder care, care for persons with disabilities, and other convenience and wellness issues. You can speak directly with one of our experienced counselors who will take the time to fully understand your concerns and explore care options with you.

After you hang up, the WorkLife Counselor will begin researching your specific care needs, freeing you to focus on your family, work or other issues in your life. Within a few days, you'll receive a return call and a packet containing provider profiles of regulated care providers who have openings, when, where, and within the price range you specified, along with educational materials to help you and your family make informed decisions. 

There are also a variety of WorkLife resources available online. Click here to login to the UTEAP WorkLife website.
