The NYS Department of Paid Family Leave (PFL) has announced its 2022 contribution rates.

The maximum employee contribution rate will remain at 0.511%, effective Jan. 1, 2022

Additionally, in 2022, employees taking Paid Family Leave will receive up to a cap of 67% of the Statewide Average Weekly Wage (SAWW) of $1,450.17 in 2021). Employees earning less than the SAWW will contribute less than the annual cap of $423.71, consistent with their actual wages.

For 2022, the weekly taxable wage base for the family-leave insurance tax is to be the lesser of the employee's gross wages for the week or $1,450.17. The maximum total contribution for 2022 is to be $423.71 for each employee, ($385.34 in 2021).

The NYS Paid Family Leave  Department has also released an on-line paid leave calculator to help with the computations.
