California Paid Family Leave (PFL) Eligibility


Am I eligible for the California Paid Family Leave (PFL)?



California State University employees are not eligible for the California Paid Family Leave. This benefit is paid through State Disability Insurance (SDI) deductions. California State University employees do not participate or contribute to this program. However, employees who have contributed to PFL through a recent (within 2 years) or concurrent employer may be eligible for this benefit. This can be verified by contacting the Employment Development Department at: (866) 758-9768 or through their website at for more information.
