Maximum  Leave  Entitlement  
Each  kind  of  leave  has  its  own  eligibility  rules  and  its  own 
limit  on  the  length  of time you can receive benefits in a 
year.  The  ma ximum  amount  of  leave  for  any  combination 
of parental, family, and medical leave is 12 weeks. 
However,  there  is an  exception  for  pregnant  women  who

your event. You can learn  more about applying for 
benefits with the Office of Paid Family Leave at

Benefit  Amounts  
Paid  Family  Leave  benefits  are  based  on  the  wages  your
