When must an employer with a voluntary plan provide benefit payments?
An employer with an approved voluntary plan must send the first benefit payment to the employee within thirty calendar days of the first day of leave, or the receipt of a properly completed application for benefits, whichever is later. Subsequent payments must be sent on the established regular pay schedule at no longer than monthly intervals. Failure to adhere to these requirements may result in the termination of the voluntary plan by the department.
