Payment Information - State Plan
Payments are issued seven to ten days after the Notice of Eligible Determination is mailed. Benefits can be for a period of one day or more but the payment will never be in an amount greater than $2,000. There will be a seven day difference between the date of the payment and the date through which benefits are paid. Generally, checks are issued every two weeks.
If there is a waiting week for your period of family leave, you will not receive benefits for this week (or any part of the first week) until benefits have been paid for any part of the three weeks following the waiting week. However, if your family leave immediately follow leave for your own illness under State Plan temporary disability, there is no waiting period for Family Leave Insurance benefits.
Any deductions that are withheld from your check and other valuable information regarding your payment can be found on your check stub.
Effective with claims determined eligible on or after April 18, 2011, benefit payments are being issued to debit cards sent to you by the Bank of America.
