Summer is now in full swing, and the JHU Office of Benefits & Worklife wants to remind you of some seasonal perks of your employee benefits.

Hot weather brings more time for fun in the sun, the best source for vitamin D. But as you and your family soak up those powerful rays, you need to protect your skin with sunscreen that is safe and effective. (which you have access to as a JHU employee) offers parents and caregivers this useful kids sunscreen guide.

Did you know that sunscreen and other SPF products are eligible for your health savings account or flexible spending account funds? Find out which ones on the WEX website.

"I'm bored!" might be a common cry from your kids since school has let out for the summer. To keep your children active, here are some fun ideas for exploring outdoors with babies and for entertaining kids ages 9-12 or all ages.

Is your child care provider taking a vacation this summer? Remember that full-time faculty, staff, and graduate students can use emergency backup care for planned and unplanned breakdowns in your child care. Access your account at and request backup care up to 30 days in advance.

Learn more about your Care@Work benefits on the HR website.
