Rhode Island Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) and Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI)
What is the Update?
The TCI benefit is increasing from 4 weeks to 5 weeks in 2022, and to 6 weeks in 2023.
The TDI/TCI benefit rate increased to a maximum of $1,007 per week, effective July 1, 2022. It was previously $978 per week. There is an additional 7% for each dependent (maximum of 5 dependents may be claimed). The maximum weekly benefit for TDI/TCI with 5 dependents, effective July 1, 2022, will be $1,359 (was $1,320) per week.
Updates to your company handbook may need to be made if you include Rhode Island state-specific income replacement benefits information.
Further Company Considerations
Please ensure as a company you are offsetting any salary continuation/company top-up pay aligned with the updated weekly benefit rate maximum effective July 2022, and the increased number of benefit weeks, effective 2023.
Note: claims that begin after this date are eligible for the new benefit rate. The Larkin Company will adjust offsets for any top-up (leave of absence pay) calculations or STD, accordingly, if we handle these services for you.
