Employers started collecting premiums for Paid Family and Medical Leave on Jan. 1, 2019. For 2019, the premium is 0.4% of each employee’s gross wages. Use the calculator below to estimate your premiums.  

Important details:

  • If you're participating in the state plan for both family and medical leave, the breakout of family and medical leave premiums from the total premium amount is for information only.
  • Premiums are capped at the Social Security Wage Base. This calculator uses the 2019 cap at $132,900. 
  • All employers may either withhold employees' premiums from their paychecks or pay some or all of the premium on their employees’ behalf. Employers cannot collect missed premiums in later pay periods.
  • Businesses with fewer than 50 employees are not required to pay the employer portion of the premium but must either collect their employees’ premiums or pay their employees’ premiums on their behalf. 
  • Employers may withhold up to 63.333% of the total premium from an employee. The employer is responsible for paying the other 36.667%, unless they are a small business. However, employees at small businesses still only pay up to 63.333% of the total premium; We do not assess the additional 36.667%.
  • “Gross wages” are pre-tax wages, minus tips.
  • If you are using a voluntary plan for family or medical leave, your calculations may be different.
