New York Paid Family Leave Benefit Level and Premium Rate Updates Announced for 2022

Once again, the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) updated its Paid Family Leave (PFL) employee premium rate and benefit level information for 2022.

For 2022, the PFL benefit level will remain at 67% of an employee’s wages for up to 12 weeks. However, the statewide average weekly wage will increase from $1,450.17/week to $1,594.57/week. This means that the maximum PFL benefit in 2022 will be $1,068.36/week (up from $971.61/week in 2021).

Additionally, although the employee premium rate will remain at 0.511% of gross wages, the maximum annual employee contribution will be capped at $423.71/year (up from $385.34/year in 2021).
