Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
The Board of Trustees of the National IAM Benefit Trust Fund added an EAP program for all medical plan participants effective January 1, 2014. Provided through CIGNA, the EAP is a program to help participants and members of their household find answers and resources to address a variety of personal concerns including counseling, legal, financial, and child care services. The EAP is strictly confidential and your participation is completely voluntary. Read the details and list of services here.
EAP resources are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The EAP toll-free number is 888-325-3978 and the Employer ID to access the EAP is "iam" or you may find EAP assistance online by clicking "Log in to access your benefits" (and entering the Employer ID: iam) at www/cignabehavioral.com.
The EAP provides resources for benefit managers of medical plan participating employers as well. See management resources here, or go to the website noted above to see what is available online. The EAP also provides helpful seminars, see this “EAP Save the Date 2017” schedule of Cigna EAP National Wellness Seminars.
