NY Paid Family Leave: New Yorkers love to bond!

NY Paid Family Leave: New Yorkers love to bond!

Now that Paid Family Leave has been available for over two months now, let’s take a look at how New Yorkers have been using PFL.

Out of the gate, 89% of our PFL claims were for bonding leave in January – largely because 2017 Moms and Dads have been using their bonding leave before baby turns one:

  • 54% of bonding leaves have been for 2017 births!

And a shout out to the Dads, who make up 20% of those bonding leaves.

A trend we’re observing now is that New Yorkers are starting to use Paid Family Leave for caregiving more.  The number of care-giver leaves is increasing – while only 10% of our claims were for this type of leave in January, this number has climbed to 15% during February. 

Stay tuned - we will continue to monitor interesting trends in PFL and provide updates!
