Your Students’ Families Can Benefit from New York’s Landmark Paid Family Leave

New York State's Paid Family Leave provides New Yorkers with job-protected, paid leave to bond with a new child, care for a loved one with a serious health condition or to help relieve family pressures when someone is called to active military service abroad.

If you know of a student whose family is experiencing a military deployment or a serious illness, please let them know that under Paid Family Leave, they can now request Paid Family Leave to care for their families and maintain their economic security.

Find eligibility requirements and other details at or call the Helpline at (844) 337-6303 Monday through Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.
