FMLA Administrative Support Now Available to Employers

LifeMap launches bundled short term disability and FMLA solution for employers

July 15, 2015

PORTLAND, Ore. – Employers are now offered an additional service to make administering short term disability benefits easier. LifeMap Assurance Company, an insurance provider offering group life, disability and individual short term medical coverage, now offers a bundled approach to short term disability and leave administration for employers by providing an added benefit in managing the compliance of federal and state short term disability rules and regulations processed as part of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

Studies show three in 10 employees entering today’s workforce will become disabled at some point in their careers ("The Real Risk of Disability in the United States," Milliman Inc. on behalf of the LIFE Foundation, May 2007).  Managing an employee’s short-term leave fairly and accurately can pose a challenge for an employer.   LifeMap’s expanded service processes employee short term disability paperwork and handles the legal complexities of FMLA administration.

“The challenges of FMLA administration can cause resourcing constraints and even impact short-term disability benefits if not handled properly,” said LifeMap President and CEO Beth Andersen. “We now offer employers a FMLA administration solution instantly tied to LifeMap’s short term disability product.”

In addition to handling employers’ FMLA administration, the new service also can provide LifeMap short term disability customers with fully integrated Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) leave accommodation guidance and administration services.
