Employers

Employers in the State of New Hampshire play a vital role in helping workers access wage replacement benefits to address their personal and family health needs while staying connected to work.

Purchase New Hampshire Paid Family and Medical Leave (NH PFML) Insurance to Recruit and Retain Workers

Take advantage of the Business Enterprise Tax (BET) credit by purchasing NH PFML insurance through MetLife, the state’s PFML insurance partner.

NH PFML is an attractive worker benefit that can give you a competitive edge by providing:  

  • Wage replacement protection for your workers to help them cope during a health crisis or care need
  • Reduced turnover and improved worker retention as workers stay connected to work
  • Increased worker morale and productivity

NH PFML insurance protects workers’ financial security and strengthens a business's bottom line.

Employers Benefit, Too

By purchasing NH PFML employer-sponsored insurance through MetLife, the state’s PFML insurance partner, you are eligible to receive a BET tax credit equal to 50% of the NH PFML Insurance premium you pay. 

Other insurers or third-party administrators may be authorized to provide equivalent PFML insurance plans, but the BET tax credit is only available when you purchase a NH PFML insurance plan through MetLife. 

Choose the NH PFML insurance plan that works for you.

Show that you value your workers. Add another dimension to your benefits package by selecting the NH PFML insurance plan that suits your needs and those of your workers.

How Much Does NH PFML Cost?

Employers will have the ability to work directly with MetLife, the state’s PFML insurance partner, or through their agent, broker or consultant to select a NH PFML insurance plan that meets their business needs (within regulatory parameters set by the state).  

An employer may fully fund the NH PFML insurance premium cost on their workers’ behalf, split the premium cost with workers or pass on the full cost to workers.

Employers who purchase a NH PFML insurance plan through MetLife will be eligible for a BET tax credit equal to 50% of the premium paid by the employer on behalf of their workers for six weeks of coverage. 

What Is the Claims Process?

Covered workers submit claims for NH PFML insurance directly to MetLife; however, employers are obligated to address worker questions and direct workers to MetLife. 

Employers must also provide wage and leave information, work schedules and other benefits information to MetLife to support NH PFML insurance claims processing.
