How much is covered

In some cases, you receive a series of payments throughout the year to help cover the cost of supplies.
Types of equipment and supplies not covered
ADP does not cover some equipment and supplies that you may use. This includes:
Repairs and replacements
ADP does not cover repair costs. You must pay those costs yourself. Care and maintenance of the equipment is your responsibility.
If you need to replace your equipment, ADP may contribute to the cost if your condition changes or your equipment is no longer under warranty and cannot be repaired at a reasonable cost.
Other organizations that help
ADP can only cover part of the cost for your equipment and supplies.
