New Jersey’s Temporary Disability Insurance and Family Leave Insurance programs are partial wage-replacement insurance plans for New Jersey workers. These benefit programs are state-mandated and funded through employee payroll deductions and employer contributions.
Temporary Disability Insurance
Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) provides partial wage replacement benefits to eligible New Jersey workers who are unable to work due to pregnancy or a non-work-related illness, or injury. Employees must fulfill a 7-day waiting period before payments begin.
Family Leave Insurance
Family Leave Insurance (FLI) provides up to 12 weeks of partial pay to eligible New Jersey employees who need to take time off work to care for a seriously ill family member (child, parent, parent-in-law, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, spouse, or registered domestic partner) or need time to bond with a new child entering their life by birth, adoption, or foster care placement
