AARP California hosted this Access Live event for members to discuss support and planning for family caregivers. This event featured Lucila Torres of USC’s Family and Caregiver Support Center and Claudia Perez of the California Employees Development Department, who provided information and resources for family caregivers to receive compensation and paid leave. Members had questions concerning paid sick leave, how to become a paid caregiver, federal programs and resources, and if retroactive benefits may apply for retired caregivers.
