California Paid Family Leave (PFL) Insurance Program

Newly hired UC employees may be eligible for benefits under the Paid Family Leave (PFL) Insurance Program and the State disability Insurance (SDI) program based on previous employment. The PFL provides up to six weeks of paid leave per year to care for parents, children, spouses, and registered domestic partners or to bond with a new child. SDI may apply to UC employees during the first 18 months of their employment at UC. In addition, eligible UC employees who concurrently work for an employer covered under the State SDI program may be eligible for Paid Family Leave benefits based on the concurrent non-UC employment.
