Congratulations! There’s much to think about when growing your family, and Okta provides benefits, programs, and resources to make this transition easier on you. Here’s what you need to know about your benefits and where you can find help.
Taking parental leave
Being a new parent is a huge life changer, and Okta offers paid parental leave to give you time to bond with your new baby or adopted child and to learn new routines as a family.
When planning your leave, be sure to review Okta’s leave of absence policies, as well.
You can sign up for Bump Boxes anytime during your pregnancy. Bump Boxes provide support to families during pregnancy, after your baby comes into the world, and as you return to work after bonding with your new baby. You’ll receive three boxes of fun and healthy swag at key points along your parenting journey! Register online to get started.
Need help adjusting to life as a parent?
Don’t hesitate to reach out, whether it’s for emotional support, finding childcare resources, or adjusting to your return to work. Okta’s employee assistance program (EAP), provided through Modern Health, has many resources to help you.
Finding childcare resources
Through Bright Horizons Family Support Services, Okta employees have preferred access to the Bright Horizons provider networks for caregiver resources.
Access family support resources through the Employee Experience Marketplace using the Espresa app on your Okta dashboard.
Talk to a lawyer—for free!

Changing your benefits
For most benefits, you must make changes within 31 days of your qualifying life event, otherwise you’ll have to wait until open enrollment.
Medical, dental, and vision
Change your Okta medical, dental, and vision plan elections, or add coverage for your new baby or adopted child(ren).
Health savings account (HSA)
Enrolled in the HDHP + HSA medical plan? You can change your HSA contributions to cover your little one’s eligible health care costs. Don’t forget to update your beneficiary, too.
Flexible spending accounts (FSAs)
You can enroll in or stop participating in an FSA, including a dependent care FSA to pay for eligible child care expenses with tax-free dollars. You can also change the amount of your contributions to meet your changing needs. Don’t forget to submit your new child’s eligible expenses for reimbursement by December 31.
Voluntary life and accidental death & dismemberment (AD&D) insurance
Your options include changing your coverage level and purchasing additional coverage for your new baby or adopted child(ren).
