There are times when caring for a family member has to be your most important priority – and that’s why TCI exists. Rhode Island’s TCI paid leave program helps you afford to take time off from work so you can
- care for a seriously ill child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, parent-in-law, or grandparent
- bond with a newborn child, adopted child, or foster child
TCI provides up to five weeks (6 weeks in 2023) of partial wage replacement and protects your job and seniority while you are home providing care. As long as your paycheck shows TDI/TCI payroll deductions, TCI benefits are your benefits to use.
Note about TDI: If you are a sick or injured worker you may be eligible for paid leave through TDI (Temporary Disability Insurance). Click here for more information.
