How to get status updates
Once you have completed your online application for paid leave benefits, your employer has 10 business days to review it. Then your application is sent to the Department of Paid Family and Medical Leave (DFML) to approve or deny. While you are waiting, you can check the status of your application by logging into your account.
Under Your applications look for Submitted applications, choose the application you want to track, and then choose View status updates and details.
This will show you more information about your application, including its status.
The five statuses you may see are:
Approved: Your application for paid leave was approved by DFML. View the pdf at the bottom of the page to see the amount you will be paid.
Denied: Your application for paid leave was denied by DFML. View the pdf at the bottom of the page for more information.
Pending: Your application is being reviewed by either your employer or DFML.
Withdrawn: You have chosen to cancel your application. It is no longer going through the approval process.
Closed: You have already finished taking this paid leave.

After we have made a decision about your application, you may choose to appeal. You may file your appeal online, or return the appeal form that came with your denial notice.
