Rhode Island Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) and Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI)
What is the Update?
Rhode Island has a disability benefit program called the Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI), and a Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) program for family care leave and parental benefits.
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.
Update (12/16/22): Rhode Island’s Department of Labor and Training recently announced the updated taxable wage base for TDI/TCI effective January 1, 2023. In 2023, the taxable wage base will increase from $81,500 to $84,000, while the maximum annual contribution will be $924. The TDI/TCI contribution rate will remain at 1.1%. TDI/TCI is fully employee-paid. We recommend that you adjust your employee contribution rates to the updated amount, effective January 1, 2023.
Update (01/20/23): Employers are still required to display the RI combination poster found here (see “DLT Required Posters” and “Combination Poster”). This poster has updated for 2023, so we recommend posting the new version in your workplace.
Updates to your company handbook may need to be made if you include Rhode Island state-specific income replacement benefits information.
There are no specific updates required to the RI Combination Poster, which simply confirms high level information. Employers are still required to display this Combination Poster.
Further Company Considerations
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.
