What is Statutory Disability Insurance (DBL)?

New York State disability benefits insurance provides temporary cash benefits paid to an eligible wage earner to replace, in part, wages lost when he/she is disabled by an off-the-job illness or injury, and for disabilities arising from pregnancy.

Who is required to provide statutory disability benefits insurance? Who is not required to be covered?

Employers who hire one or more employees on each of 30 days in any calendar year in New York State are required to provide statutory disability benefits insurance for their employees (after the 30th day of such employment) unless they are considered exempt.
