Frequently Asked Questions

Workers covered by State Disability Insurance (SDI) and have earnings from which SDI deductions were withheld during the base period are also covered by PFL. If a Voluntary Plan insurer provides a company’s disability insurance coverage in lieu of SDI, then it must also provide PFL coverage.
Workers may be eligible for PFL if they suffer a wage loss when they take time off of work to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child as long as they meet the basic eligibility requirements.
