Care.com Benefit for Employees and Students

U-M faculty, staff, and students can search for caregivers in their area through Care.com. The service includes caregivers for children (including tutors), adults, seniors, pets, and more.

The monthly membership fee for Care.com is covered by U-M. Employees and students will be responsible for the cost of the care they utilize. This benefit is currently available through mid-January 2022. 

  • Regular (non-temporary) employees can register at umich.care.com using their U-M uniqname.

  • Current U-M students must register via our student sign-up for Care.com for access, unless they are part-time or full-time, regular U-M employees (e.g. GSIs, GSRAs) -- those student-employees are already in the Care.com system and do not need to sign up. 

  • For login problems or other technical issues, try accessing umich.care.com using a different browser. If you still need help, or to inquire about possible reimbursement for an existing membership, please contact Care.com member care at 855-781-1303 for assistance. 

Visit umich.care.com to get started and watch a short video on how to enroll. Other Care.com resources are available, including recordings of Care.com webinars and podcasts. Also, any available Care.com LifeMart Discounts for child care centers and other service companies are listed on the site for U-M employees and students who enroll.

Temporary employees, retirees and alumni are not eligible for this benefit.
