California Paid Family Leave (PFL) is funded through employee payroll deductions and provides disability compensation to covered individuals who take time off of work to care for a seriously ill child, spouse, parent or domestic partner, or to bond with a new child. Benefits are payable to eligible employees commencing leave on or after July 1, 2004. To calculate your benefit, refer to the Disability Insurance Weekly Benefit Chart published by the California Employment Development Department.

When an employee applies for PFL, he/she should notify Benefits Administration as soon as possible to ensure that payroll is coordinated appropriately. For more information on PFL, contact the California EDD at 1-800-480-3287 or Benefits Administration at 4-8487.
