Guidance Resources® Benefits

Confidential Counseling
GuidanceResources benefits are designed to provide free short-term counseling services for UCR faculty, staff and their household family members to help handle concerns constructively, before they become major issues. Call anytime about concerns such as marital, relationship and family problems; stress, anxiety and depression; grief and loss, job pressures and substance abuse.
The work-life specialists at ComPsych will do the research and provide qualified referrals and customized resources for child and elder care, moving, pet care, college planning, home repair, buying a car, planning an event, selling a house and more. For detailed information about the services provided, please review the Work-Life Benefits flyer.
With the GuidanceResources program, there is an attorney “on call” whenever there are questions about legal matters. Speak with on-staff licensed attorneys about legal concerns such as divorce, custody, adoption, real estate, debt and bankruptcy, landlord/tenant issues, civil and criminal actions and more. If representation is required, you can be referred to a qualified attorney for a free 30-minute consultation and a 25 percent reduction in customary legal fees. Learn more about legal support by reviewing the Legal Benefits flyer.

With the GuidanceResources benefit, you can get answers about budgeting, debt management, tax issues and other money concerns from on-staff CPAs, Certified Financial Planners® and other financial experts, simply by calling your toll-free number. To get additional information, please review the Financial Benefits flyer.
