Sole Proprietorships


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

A sole proprietor that has employees is automatically excluded from the business’ disability benefits insurance coverage but may be included.
