Sign up for NH Paid Family and Medical Leave as an Individual
If you work in New Hampshire, and your employer does not offer NH Paid Family and Medical Leave (NH PFML) or an equivalent plan, you can purchase NH PFML insurance for yourself.

With NH PFML, you can take home up to 60% of your weekly wages when you’re ill or injured, caring for a new baby or another family member, or supporting family during specific military events.

Start here to enroll in NH PFML for yourself. Here’s how the process works.

1.      Make sure that:

  • You work in New Hampshire
  • You are not already covered by your employer

2.      Use this quick calculator to get your insurance quote. Enter required information that includes:

  • Your date of birth
  • Your salary
  • Your employer’s contact information

3.      Once you have your quote, you can decide to purchase NH PFML insurance and enroll.
