Rubio, Wagner hold press conference to introduce paid family leave bill
Approximately 2:30 p.m.

The Economic Security for New Parents Act creates an option for new parents to pull forward a portion of their Social Security to use for paid parental leave after the birth or adoption of a child.
Parents taking the option must use the benefit to take at least two months of parental leave, and the benefit is large enough to finance two months of leave at up to 70 percent of wages for nearly all parents making below median family income. Many parents, especially those with low incomes, will be able to finance three months of leave or longer with the amount of the benefit, which is transferable between spouses.
In order to finance the benefit, all parents taking the option will delay the date at which they begin receiving Social Security retirement benefits by three to six months, as determined by the Social Security Administration each year.
