Virginia Tech® home pilot to end Oct. 31

From: Hokie Wellness

Virginia Tech has been piloting backup care services with for the past year. After reviewing the pilot’s results and listening to feedback from faculty and staff, it was clear that was not meeting Virginia Tech’s needs.

As of Nov. 1, 2023, Virginia Tech will no longer offer as a benefit to employees. We are researching other backup care options for full-time faculty and staff and hope to share details soon.

Backup care and other services will no longer be available after Oct. 31; however, reimbursement requests for backup care that happens on or before Oct. 31 can be submitted until Nov. 30.
