New Jersey Expands Family Leave Insurance Law!

Family Caregiving Worker

On February 19, 2019 Governor Murphy signed S2528/ A3975 the Expansion of NJ Family Leave Insurance into law  – 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 Governor Murphy and those Senators and Assemblypersons who voted YES on expanding the NJ Family Leave Act. Please take a moment to send Governor Murphy a note of thanks for his commitment to working family caregivers in the Garden State.

New Jersey Expands Family Leave Insurance Law!

Dear  [Decision Maker],

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for signing S2528/ A3975 the expansion of New Jersey's Family Leave Act into a law. 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 support on this critical piece of legislation underscores your commitment to ensuring a strong support system for working family caregivers in our state.

Thank you!
