Expanded Benefits Under New Jersey’s Paid Family Leave Now Available

By Kara Miller

Under the new law, eligible workers can now collect up to 85% of their weekly pay, up to a maximum weekly amount of $881 per week. This is a significant increase over the previous weekly cap of benefits which was $650 per week. The new law also doubles the number of benefit weeks, from 6 weeks to 12 weeks. Lastly, the new law expands the definition of who qualifies as a family member. Previously, the law including only children, parents, spouses, domestic partners, and civil union partners. Now the law also includes adult children, parents-in-law, siblings, grandparents, grandchildren, any blood relative, and anyone else you consider to be like family.
