Paid Family Leave Insurance

Texas’ insurance code now includes voluntary Paid Family Leave as a new form of insurance.

Texas passed a bill allowing insurance companies to issue Paid Family Leave coverage in the state. Carriers may begin filing their non-statutory PFL insurance product on September 1, 2023.

Once the PFL product is approved, insurance carriers can offer TX PFL to employers in Texas on a voluntary basis beginning January 2024.

Coverage is provided to covered employees for the following leave reasons:

  • Birth or adoption of a child
  • Placement of a child with the employee for foster care
  • Care of a family member with a serious health condition
  • Circumstances arising due to the employee’s family member, who is a service-member, being on active duty or notified of an impending call or order to active duty
  • To care for certain family members injured in the line of duty can assist plan sponsors in establishing a Paid Family Leave insurance program.
