Paid Family Leave provides both time off and wage replacement benefits, which phase in over a four-year period through 2021. The wage benefit is a percentage of your average weekly wage (AWW), capped at the same percentage of the Statewide Average Weekly Wage (SAWW). Generally, your AWW is the average of your last eight weeks of wages prior to taking PFL. The SAWW is updated annually.
