Native American Enterprises


Disability benefits insurance coverage is not required for Native American enterprises owned by the Native American tribe itself (i.e. Casinos) -- (the Native Americans and non-Native Americans working at the enterprise may be covered voluntarily).

If, however, the enterprise is not owned by the tribe, but instead is owned by an individual, partnership, corporation etc., then the enterprise must abide by the regular New York State coverage requirements for disability benefits insurance.
