New to The Bump with Questions!!

Hi All,

I mentioned on another board that my husband and I will start TTC this May!! We're elated!!

This question really pertains to California residents or individuals who know how California State Disability Insurance (SDI)/Paid Family Leave (PFL) works.

The questions I have are: how do I find out what my weekly benefit amount would be, for both SDI and PFL? How long will my SDI benefits be paid for? I recall it being 12 weeks however has that changed? I believe with PFL there's a maximum of 6 weeks for benefits, correct? They're distributing the weekly benefits on EDD Debit Cards now, how is one supposed to make mortgage payments that are electronically withdrawn from another account? Are the benefits tax free?

 Any other information will be greatly appreciated!

  • hi! Are you employed? If so, I would assume your HR contact in your company or your employer would be able to fill you in on the disability benefits. Start there...?

    I was able to find some info on this gov website, although it is a little confusing:

    I am 13 weeks pregnant and work in the city of Los Angeles. I am going to have to inquire soon about maternity leave so if I find out any info, I will let you know.

    Good luck!
