Maternity Coverage for Young Workers

Maternity leave in New Jersey has two parts:

  1. Temporary Disability Insurance provides benefits when you can't work because you're pregnant or recovering from childbirth
  2. Family Leave Insurance provides benefits when you're not working because you're bonding with or caring for your new baby

Most people who work in New Jersey qualify for paid leave benefits. To learn more about eligibility, job protection, and coverage for non-birthing parents, check out our New Parent Handout (PDF).
