State Mandated Short Term Leave Solutions* (NY, NJ, & HI)

PCA Retirement & Benefits (RBI) recommends J. Smith Lanier & Unum for your ministry’s State Mandated Short Term Leave Insurance needs.

Several states have created mandatory leave policies for employees.  These laws have similarities, but the specific requirements vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.  In certain locations, clergy may be exempt from coverage, while other employees within churches, schools and related ministries are not.  Therefore, some coverage may be needed in order to comply with state mandated requirements.

At this time, there is not sufficient scale to provide a new RBI sponsored product.   However, we have worked with one of our business partners to identify a solution for PCA churches and businesses.  Marsh McLennan, the PCA Retirement & Benefits insurance consultant, provides State Mandated Short Term Leave policies for New York, New Jersey and Hawaii through the Unum Group, a Fortune 500 employee benefits company.

If your ministry is interested in addressing your state mandate, please contact Marsh McLennan and inquire about their State Mandated Short Term Leave solutions. A brief description of state mandated leave policy can be found in the Unum 2021 FMLA Brochure. Marsh McLennan contact information can be found here.
