Massachusetts businesses with 25+ employees are required to contribute towards the MA Paid Family & Medical Leave (PFML) benefits. However, the state-offered PFML plan is NOT your only option to meet this mandate. As a MA employer, you can apply for an exemption, as long as you offer employees a plan with benefits, rights, and protections at least equal to those provided by the PFML law.
MAIA's Number One Insurance Agency has teamed up with ShelterPoint Life Insurance Company to provide such an alternative — a stand-alone private PFML plan that is available to employers with 25+ employees, and to brokers for your clients with 25+ employees.
Founded in 1972, they have grown into New York’s largest* carrier of statutory Short-Term Disability (called DBL, short for Disability Benefits Law), and an approved private carrier for New Jersey’s State Disability (TDI, short for Temporary Disability Insurance) since 2003.** For a thorough understanding of what MA PFML is, download ShelterPoint's EMPLOYERS' BROCHURE.
We have a dedicated team to work with you, offering the guidance you need for the coverage required — from filing your exemption, to onboarding your staff, and servicing and paying claims. We keep it simple with direct bill online payment capabilities!
If you have a MA Health License, use it to help your clients meet the state-mandated PFML benefit requirement!
