TCI takes effect in Rhode Island

Posted: Updated:

The temporary caregiver insurance program, or TCI, is now law in Rhode Island.

The TCI program provides up to four weeks of wage replacement benefits to workers who need to be out of work to care for a child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, parent-in-law or grandparent. It also applies to newborns, adoptions and foster children.

A claim cannot be filed until the individual has been out of work for at least seven consecutive days.

The program is administered by the state Department of Labor and Training's Temporary Disability Insurance Division and funded entirely by employee payroll deductions.
