If you qualify for both unemployment benefits and paid leave, the amount in paid leave benefits that you are eligible for will be reduced by any unemployment benefits you collect during your leave. Any unemployment benefits collected prior to your family or medical leave beginning will not affect your paid leave benefit amount.
If you are making a claim for paid leave and worker’s compensation about the same injury or incident that you are requesting to take paid leave for, the amount you receive in paid leave benefits may be reduced by the amount you receive in weekly worker’s compensation wage replacement benefits.
If the workplace injury you’re receiving worker’s compensation benefits for occurred prior to your paid leave claim, OR if the 2 incidents are independent of each other, you may be able to receive both without any reduction in your paid leave benefits.
Social Security programs
If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), you may be eligible to take paid family or medical leave, but the amount of benefits you are eligible for may be reduced. You must report any supplemental income you receive during your paid leave application.
Temporary Disability or paid family and medical leave benefits through your employer
You can receive payments from some kinds of disability and paid family and medical leave policies through your employer while you are receiving PFML benefits from the Department. Your PFML benefits will only be reduced if the total amount you receive from both payments is greater than your average weekly wage.
Sick time through your employer
You may not receive paid family or medical leave benefits and use paid sick time through your employer at the same time. If you choose to use employer sick time while you are taking paid leave, your approved benefit amount may be reduced in order to offset benefits.
Earned time off through your employer
You may not receive paid family or medical leave benefits and use paid earned time off through your employer at the same time. If you choose to use vacation time while taking paid leave, your approved benefit amount may be reduced in order to offset benefits.
