This report reviews the birth and adoption unemployment compensation (BAA-UC) proposal and discusses alternative ways to compensate families for births and adoptions. It examines the changes implied for UI programs if BAA-UC is adopted. Three alternatives to BAA-UC are: 1) compensation through state temporary disability insurance (TDI), 2) partial reimbursement to employers who provide paid leave and 3) administration of payments through UI but with no link to the financing or trust funds of existing UI programs in the states. Some comparisons among these alternatives are made.
