Paid Family and Medical Leave is here for you when a serious health condition prevents you from working, when you need time to care for a family member or welcome a new child, or for certain military-related events.
Determine if you’re eligible for Paid Leave, when to notify your employer and what documents you will need when you apply for leave.
You can apply after you have determined you are eligible, gathered all your documents and experienced a qualifying event.
Learn how to check your application status online and find out if you’ll have a waiting week before you start receiving benefits.
After your application is approved, you must file a claim each week to get paid. It should only take a few minutes.
