Cost to the Worker
The family leave program is financed 100% by worker payroll deductions. Employers do not contribute to the program. Starting January 1, 2013, each worker contributes .001% of the taxable wage base. For 2013, the taxable wage base is $30,900, and the maximum yearly deduction for Family Leave Insurance is $30.90. The taxable wage base changes each year.
The cost for coverage under an approved private plan can not be more than you would have contributed for State Plan coverage.
