New Jersey Expands Family Leave Insurance Law!

Family Caregiving Worker

On January 31st, the New Jersey legislature passed S2528/A3975 – a bill that expands New Jersey’s Family Leave Act by increasing the amount of time a family caregiver can take off work to care for a loved one, increasing the wage replacement a family caregiver can receive, increasing job protections, and expanding the definition of family. The bill also increases funding for public awareness of the law since only about 1% of eligible individuals have taken advantage of the benefit since the Family Leave Act was established over a decade ago.

Now it’s time to say THANK YOU!

AARP applauds those Senators and Assemblypersons who voted YES on expanding the NJ Family Leave Act. Please take a moment to send your legislators a note of thanks for their commitment to working family caregivers in the Garden State.

Family caregivers are the backbone of our nation's care system and many of them must juggle full or part-time jobs while caring for their loved ones. Your vote on this critical piece of legislation underscores your commitment to ensuring a strong support system for working family caregivers in our state.
