Equitable & Accessible Benefits

Caring for our associates is at the heart of every decision we make. In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization on June 24, 2022 we have introduced the following benefits and resources for AEO associates.

  • Travel coverage for associates and dependents who are enrolled in AEO’s healthcare plan. Travel coverage, up to a lifetime maximum of $10,000, will be provided to those enrolled members who must travel 60 miles or more to attain covered medical and behavioral services. This coverage extends to reproductive health, including abortions, gender reassignment and fertility services.
  • Associate FAQ. We believe one of the best ways we can support, protect, and empower associates right now–when so much is still unclear–is to provide up-to-date and accurate information. Our Human Resources and Legal teams have created an online portal that associates can confidently rely on to find the answers to frequently asked questions, which will be updated as more information becomes available.

We will remain focused on evaluating and enhancing our benefits to meet the evolving needs of our associates. This includes reviewing the services and resources available for our part-time and hourly populations across the business, because we want all of our associates to feel supported by the AEO community.

Our promise is that we will continue to advocate for our associates and their families. We are a company of nearly 40,000 that is committed to celebrating everyone’s differences and unique voices.
