LRAP Plus Policies

Parental Leave

Participants who are the primary caregiver for their dependent child(ren) up to the age of six and who are working less than full-time may continue to receive LRAP benefits from the Program subject to the following conditions:

  • Participants working at least half-time in eligible positions will receive benefits based upon Qualifying Income calculated on a pro rata basis at the fulltime equivalent rate for the position, and subject to all other conditions of the Program. Such periods will be included in the calculation of eligible time in the Program for purposes of Loan Forgiveness and Repayment.
  • Participants on approved Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) parental leaves may continue to receive benefits for up to six months based upon Qualifying Income calculated at the participant’s full-time salary immediately preceding such leave, and subject to all other conditions of the Program. Such periods will be included in the calculation of eligible time in the Program for purposes of Loan Forgiveness and Repayment.

Part-time employment is ineligible under PSLFP.
