Anyone familiar with the new law in NJ? I'm sure I know the answer to this question, but... if my sister works in Philadelphia, PA, but resides in NJ, does she get the coverage?

She needs to look at her paystub and see if they are taking out a tax for it.
I live in Philly and work in NJ and received the coverage with both kids, but I've also gotten the tax taken out.

And surprisingly, the people that answer the phone there are quite pleasant and helpful- she should call and ask.

It all depends on where her payroll and taxes are through. Most likely it is through PA unless it is a big company that does a NJ payroll....

My sister lives in NJ but works in Delaware and could only use Delaware benefits... her company has a NJ payroll but she didnt have time to switch to it before the baby to get NJ benefits.

My friend who lived in PA got disability benefits through my NJ company but my company pays into a private short term disability benefit which was better than the one offered by the state so that is the one women at my company use. She also needs to check with HR to see what she pays into and how they work their maternity leave. It really varies with companies so it's best just to ask HR.

NJ state disability benefits are mandated for anyone who works in the state for a private employer.

If your sister lives in NJ, but works in Pa she is not covered by the NJ plan. Her best best is to buy an individual short term disability before she conceives.
