Back-Up Child Care

Effective January 1, 2019
The JPMorgan Back-Up Child Care Plan helps when your regular child care solution is unavailable. The Plan currently offers 14 dedicated JPMorgan Chase back-up child care centers, managed by Bright Horizons Family Solutions, as well as providing access to Bright Horizons full-service and back-up centers throughout the U.S.
Back-up care is available for children who are 6 weeks to 12 years old, for whom you are the legal guardian. You can use care for your stepchildren and the children of your domestic partner, provided that these children live with you. Care for grandchildren, nieces and nephews is only available if you can provide court-issued documentation that you are their legal guardian.
You are eligible for up to 20 days of back-up care per child per year. Back-up care is only available on days when you are working at JPMorgan Chase.
To use the back-up care, you must register in advance, and then make reservations when care is needed, up to 35 days in advance. Space is limited, so be sure to make your reservation as soon as you know you will need back-up care. You can make reservations online, at https://backup.brighthorizons.com/jpmc.
In addition to providing back-up care, the 14 dedicated centers offer special programs, the 8-Week Advantage program, the Patriotic Leave program, the Relocation Program and the Summer Advantage program.
This section of the Guide will provide you with more information about the services offered through the JPMorgan Chase Back-Up Child Care Plan, and how you can take advantage of this convenient benefit.
