Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (LPFSA)

NH Paid Family & Medical Leave (NH PFML)
Provides a 60% wage replacement (up to the social security wage cap) for up to six weeks per year (after an initial 7-day elimination period) for absences from work for covered common life events such as:
- An employee’s own serious health condition when disability coverage does not apply
- An employee to bond with a child during the first year of birth, including placement for adoption or fostering
- An employee to care for a family member with a serious health condition
- Any qualifying urgent demand or need arising out of the fact that the employee’s spouse, child or parent is a covered military member on covered active duty
- An employee to care for a covered service member with a serious injury or illness if the employee is the service member’s spouse, child, parent or next of kin
NH PFML will run concurrently with the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) when the employee qualifies for both programs. If the employee is eligible for workers compensation, they will not qualify for PFML benefits for this same event. If the employee qualifies for Short-Term Disability, they will not qualify for PFML benefits for the same days absent. This leave can be used intermittently.
