There is a 7 day non-payable waiting period which begins on the first date of your disability leave.
If you have Employer Disability Forms. please email them to Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax them directly to her at (415) 230-2379. Be sure to indicate your last day of work, and the “start” date of your disability leave.
How to Apply for Paid Family Leave
There is no need for your provider to fill out PFL forms. You may fill it out and mail it to the State. You can find the online application here.
For patients utilizing their 8-week PFL benefits in conjunction with their SDI benefits, the State will send you these forms once your disability leave ends (your disability leave will end 6 weeks after birth for vaginal deliveries or 8 weeks after birth for Cesarean deliveries). There is no need to submit these forms to our office.
For people taking Paid Family Leave (PFL) that is not in conjunction with a maternity-disability leave (for example: partners and adoptive parents), the first 7 days of PFL is not paid by the State as it is considered a “waiting period”.
For further questions about your specific leave, please contact Cynthia by phone at, 415.831.2173 or by email at email@example.com. Cynthia can also be found on our patient portal!
