• Your current billing cycles do not change, whether they’re annual or quarterly.
  • Our DBL invoices include PFL as a line item for policyholders who are required to provide (or have opted in) this coverage.   
    • Policyholders billed quarterly in arrears will see PFL on their 1st quarter 2018 bill in April.         
  • We are staggering the billing schedule based on renewal/effective dates for DBL/PFL with prorated PFL premiums where applicable.
    • Policyholders renewing between May and October with annual bills receive a one-time, prorated PFL-only bill. This allows you to get both coverages aligned on your DBL billing anniversary and for your annual reconciliation.

As a ShelterPoint policyholder, you can continue paying your premium via the same method you’re accustomed to:

  • E-Pay: Our convenient and intuitive online payment tool includes context-sensitive help and does the math for you.We highly recommend this option as it walks you through your bill with easy step-by-step instructions.
  • Paper Bill: We’ve revised and tested our DBL/PFL bill to make the integration of PFL calculations as easy as possible.

Things to keep in mind and have ready when paying your PFL benefit:

  • When it comes to head counts, coverage eligibility for DBL and PFL is not the same. Check out this article to see why.
  • Since the PFL rate is set by NY State as a percent of wages, you should have your payroll records at hand and then split your workforce into 2 groups – those above and those below the current annualized NYS Average Weekly Wage (NYS AWW) of $67,907.84.* Then:
    • take the count of the employees (number) who make more than this amount and
    • add up the wages ($amount) of employees who make less than this amount

*Based upon NYSAWW as of March 31, 2017. NY Department of Labor releases the updated NYSAWW every March 31.
