Other Benefits

PNC’s Adoption Assistance benefits are offered to eligible Full-Time and part-time employees. Benefits include financial assistance up to $5,000 for eligible expenses. The child must be age 18 or younger at the time a qualified adoption expense is paid or incurred and cannot be a child for whom you or your spouse/domestic partner is the natural parent.

For more details, read the Adoption Assistance Benefits Summary Plan Description (SPD).

Paid time off for adoptive parents is available under the Parental Leave policy.

The Commuter Benefits Program provides a tax-advantaged program for employees who commute to work. You can enroll at any time; it is not part of annual enrollment.

Employees can pay for eligible commuting costs (parking and mass transit expenses) through automatic, pretax payroll deductions. When you enroll, you select the options and amounts for mass transit and/or parking (up to the IRS limits) that fit your needs. PNC deducts your contribution from your pay before taxes are calculated, which saves you money. If your commuter expenses exceed the individual pretax limits, you can contribute additional amounts on an after-tax basis through payroll deduction.

Key Features

This program offers the convenience of:

  • Transit passes delivered right to your door;
  • Stored value cards that can be automatically reloaded each month; and
  • The option to pay your parking lease directly to the lot or garage.

The Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA) lets you use pretax dollars to pay for eligible dependent care expenses. These include: day care for your qualified dependents, before- and after-school programs, summer day camp and adult day care so that you (and your spouse if you are married) can work, or so that you can work full-time if your spouse is a full-time student or disabled. For many employees, the DCRA can mean significant tax savings. Note: Although the maximum contribution is $5,000, you may be limited to a lower contribution if you are considered highly compensated in 2019, per IRS rules.
