Is Disability and Paid Family Leave Benefits Coverage Required?
Disability benefits (DB) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) coverage is required for all employees. PFL is generally included as a rider on a DB policy. For new employees, DB/PFL coverage must be obtained within four weeks from the newly hired employee's 30th day of employment.
Note: Some part-time or seasonal employees may qualify for a waiver of PFL coverage. See Opting Out/Waivers for more information.
