Parental Day

Full-time faculty are entitled to one day off with pay upon the birth of a baby. This Parental Day should be taken on the day the child is born or within a reasonable time following the date of birth.

Faculty who experience a “qualifying change” in family status are permitted to make benefits changes within 31 days of the event. Go to or call 1-866-700-6762 to confirm that your event qualifies and to obtain details and instructions on initiating a benefits change.

To change your Federal income tax withholdings, modify you W-4 form on Sinai Central.


Note: All benefits and programs are subject to change from time to time in accordance with institutional policy. A full policy description is available on the intranet.
