Family Caregiver benefit for adults
Since December 3rd, 2017, the new Family Caregiver benefit for adults is available to help families care for a critically ill adult. This benefit allows eligible caregivers to take up to 15 weeks off work to care for or support an adult family member who is critically ill or injured. Eligible caregivers are family members or individuals that the critically ill or injured adult considers to be like family. This new 15-week Family Caregiver benefit may be shared by eligible family members over a one-year period. For more information, click here.
