Temporary Disability / Caregiver Insurance

IMPORTANT: A new payment card will be sent to claimants who receive their UI or TDI payments via Electronic Payment Card (EPC). Please click here for more information.

TDI provides benefit payments to insured RI workers for weeks of unemployment caused by a temporary disability or injury. Enacted in 1942, TDI was the first of its kind in the United States. It protects workers against wage loss resulting from a non-work related illness or injury, and is funded exclusively by Rhode Island workers. Only four other states; New York, New Jersey, California and Hawaii, as well as the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, have a TDI program.

BENEFIT RATES as of 7/1/22:
$114 minimum; $1007 maximum
not including dependency allowance

TCI was signed into law on July 11, 2013. TCI provides eligible claimants up to 6 weeks of caregiver benefits to care for a seriously ill child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, parent-in-law or grandparent, or to bond with a newborn child, new adopted child or new foster-care child. You must apply for TCI benefits during the first 30 days after the first day of leave is taken for reasons of bonding or caregiving.
