The bill provides that when a covered individual applies for temporary disability benefits for disability resulting from pregnancy or the birth of a child, the plan administering the covered individual's benefits must automatically process an application for that individual to its paid family leave benefits program, unless the individual affirmatively opts out of that program. The application for benefits shall be processed to allow the family leave benefits, if approved, to begin immediately following the end of the temporary disability benefits, unless the individual notifies the plan that the individual wants to postpone or opt out of the family leave. A covered individual who is approved for temporary disability benefits pursuant to the provisions of the bill must notify the plan administering the covered individual's benefits the date on which the covered individual will return to work, and must notify the plan administering the benefits if the covered individual returns to work on an earlier date. A covered individual will receive a longer period of disability before the expected delivery date or after the actual delivery date, if the covered individual provides the plan administering the benefits with a certification from a health care provider that the longer period is necessary.
