BILLING

  • Your clients’ current billing cycles will not change (whether they’re annual or quarterly).
    • Depending on timing of PFL rider approval, some clients may receive a one-time interim PFL bill to align with their annual reconciliation. A billing schedule will be available soon.
  • Once PFL is implemented, our DBL billing invoices will include PFL coverage as a new line item.

PREMIUM PAYMENT

ShelterPoint policyholders can continue paying their premiums via the same method they're accustomed to:

  • Paper bill: We have revised and put our DBL/PFL bill through multiple user tests to make the integration of the additional PFL calculation as easy as possible.
  • E-pay, our convenient and intuitive online payment tool for your clients includes context-sensitive help and does the math for your clients.

What your clients should keep in mind and have handy when paying for their new PFL benefit:

  • When it comes to head counts, eligibility for DBL and PFL is not the same!
    Read this blog post to brush up on this topic.
  • Since the PFL rate is set as a percent of wages, your clients should have their payroll records handy, such as their NYS-45 or payroll system

ShelterPoint  TOOLS FOR YOU

Please use your client's payroll records to calculate a realistic premium for PFL.
