Vermonters Need a Strong Paid Family & Medical Leave Program
The financial and emotional strain of unpaid family caregiving is pressing down hard on many Vermont residents, according to new research released today by AARP Vermont. The study finds that Vermont family caregivers often struggle to provide timely quality care to their loved ones without sacrificing their own health and financial security. The research also shows strong support for a paid family and medical leave program across political parties and income levels in Vermont.
AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that empowers people to choose how they live as they age. We advocate on issues that affect residents at the local, state, and national levels.
AARP Vermont is ramping up its advocacy for legislation that would require employers to offer paid family and medical leave to support the state’s unpaid family caregivers.

The last several years have shown us the importance of being prepared for an uncertain future, and that includes having savings to depend on. Unfortunately, thousands of Vermonters who work for themselves or small businesses have no retirement benefits at work. The truth is that many small businesses want to be able to provide a workplace retirement savings option, but can’t because of how expensive and time consuming it is.
