What Employers Need to Know
PFML is underwritten and paid by the state of Massachusetts. But employers have the option of seeking a privatized plan, instead.
By law, private PFML plans must offer payouts the same or better than the state plan, with premiums equal to or lower than state premiums. Privatized plans may offer faster underwriting, better service, increased benefits, and lower premiums.
PFML in Massachusetts is a stand-alone benefit. But employers may be able to save money by bundling it with ancillary benefits, including dental, vision, and group life.
If you want to write PFML without bundling other benefits, though, your choice in carriers may be limited. DBL Center can write PFML independent of other lines, making it easy and convenient to privatize family and medical leave in Massachusetts.
We are here to help brokers and employers, alike, privatize PFML through our preferred carriers. You will benefit from our white-glove service, fast and flexible payouts, and potential discounts.
Brokers writing PFML will gain the advantage of our Broker Dashboard app, which allows them to track commissions, renewals, and cancellations at a glance. The Broker Dashboard enables brokers to retain customers more easily and, as a result, keep more of what they earn for increased commissions and incremental growth.
