Time for your
new family.
You’ve earned this.

From first smiles to first steps and first photos, you’ve earned these moments with your family. Through Washington’s Paid Family and Medical Leave program, now you can take time off work to care for those you love and still pay your bills.

We’re here to help.

"Having uninterrupted time with our daughter was one of the best parenting decisions we made."
