Paid Family Leave coverage available for Benefits Fund participants
The NYSNA Benefits Fund offers participants Paid Family Leave coverage administered through The Hartford. This coverage, which costs participants nothing, provides job-protected, paid leave to bond with a new child (birth, adoption, or fostering), care for a loved one with a serious health condition, or assistance with family situations when a loved one is deployed abroad on active military service. Click here for more information regarding PFL coverage for Benefits Fund participants. You may also find in-depth details about Paid Family Leave in the Benefits Fund’s Summary Plan Description.
(You cannot take short-term disability and Paid Family Leave at the same time. However, if you qualify for short-term disability [for example, after giving birth], you may take short-term disability and then Paid Family Leave. You cannot take more than 26 weeks of combined short-term disability and Paid Family Leave coverage in a 52-week period. For more information about the Fund's Short-Term Disability benefit click here.)
