Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave (MA PFML)

Managing and coordinating PFML with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Short Term Disability (STD) can be challenging and time consuming. Our leave solutions take the burden off of employers, so you can focus on your business and employees.

Nearly all employers, regardless of size, with Massachusetts employees are required to provide MA PFML, and almost all employees are eligible to receive benefits. We offer both fully insured and administrative service options to employers who obtain a private-plan exemption from the state. We work with you every step of the way to create an experience that’s as seamless as possible for you, your employees, and their families.


MA PFML is a state-mandated plan that provides up to 26 weeks of job-protected paid leave if employees are unable to work due to a serious health condition, or if they need to care for an ill or injured family member, bond with a new child, or manage family affairs when a family member is on active duty in the armed forces.
