Massachusetts Paid Family Medical Leave Act:
What Employers Need to Know
Paid family and medical leave is underwritten and paid by the state of Massachusetts. But employers have the option of seeking a privatized plan, instead.
By law, private FMLA 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.
FMLA 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 FMLA without bundling other benefits, though, your choice in carriers may be limited. DBL Center can write FMLA 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 FMLA through our preferred carriers. You will benefit from our white-glove service, fast and flexible payouts, and potential discounts.
Brokers writing FMLA 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.
