Arch Insurance has announced it is offering a combined short term disability (STD) and paid family leave (PFL) product to employers in Pennsylvania. This product, LeaveAssure™, provides partial income replacement for employees who are unable to work due to their own illness or injury, or who need a leave of absence to care for a close family member.
Underwritten by Arch Insurance Company, LeaveAssure™ also includes coverage for employees who are placed under an order of quarantine due to exposure to an infection or contagious disease as certified by a local health board. This includes COVID-19.
Employers can choose from a combined plan, which offers both STD and PFL benefits, or they can select either benefit individually.
