FAQs – Part-time, Intermittent, or Reduced Work Schedule
Can I use Paid Family Leave (PFL) benefits intermittently while working part-time? How would I indicate the intention to use benefits intermittently on the Claim for Paid Family Leave (PFL) Benefits (DE 2501F) or the Claim for Paid Family Leave (PFL) Benefits - New Mother (DE 2501FP)?
You may receive PFL benefits intermittently while working part-time. If you use PFL benefits intermittently, check “yes” to question A13 on the Claim for Paid Family Leave (PFL) Benefits (DE 2501F) or “yes” to question 6 on the Claim for Paid Family Leave (PFL) Benefits - New Mother (DE 2501FP). You should also attach a detailed note to your claim form explaining which days will be worked and the number of hours to be worked each day.
How is the waiting period served when a claimant is providing care only part time?
The required seven-day waiting period can be served on consecutive days or on nonconsecutive days depending on the care required. Benefits are payable once the seven days have been served and all other eligibility criteria are met.
Can a Claimant receive sick leave pay and serve the waiting period at the same time?
