Rhode Island Family and Medical Leave Programs

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.

(Update 12/18/23, Effective 01/01/24): The taxable wage ceiling and contribution rate for the TDI program has been updated for 2024. The employee contribution rate is increasing from 1.1% to 1.2% and the taxable wage ceiling is increasing from $84,000 to $87,000. Lastly, the maximum contribution is increasing from $924 to $1,044.

(Update 02/01/24: Effective immediately): The TDI/TCI combination workplace poster has been updated. The change was for a different link within the “Employment and Training Services” Section of the poster. We recommend that you swap out the current workplace poster with the new one without delay. Employers are reminded that the poster must be displayed within their RI workplace(s) in a place where all employees can see them. For remote workers or telecommuters, employers may email or text the webpage linked in our “Notice Requirements” section below, to comply with this requirement.

Handbook/Policy Updates


Notice Requirements

Navigate to the Department of Labor and Training (DLT) website and find the poster under the website’s “DLT Required Posters” tab. You are required to display the poster in a conspicuous location within your RI workplace(s), and email it to your remote workers.
