Sole Proprietorships


Disability benefits coverage is not required for a sole proprietor who does not have employees (Employees). Sole proprietors may not voluntarily cover themselves for NYS disability insurance.

A sole proprietor that has employees is automatically excluded from the business’ disability benefits insurance coverage and cannot be included.
