    PFML Expansion: Absent a Federal Program, States Are Filling the Void

    PFML Expansion: Absent a Federal Program, States Are Filling the Void

    Podcast Episode 22: PFML Expansion: Absent a Federal Program, States Are Filling the Void

    Notes:
    In the absence of a federal PFML program, states continue to establish their own programs. Maryland and Delaware are the latest to adopt PFML. While PFML programs make a significant difference for a family, they are also adding complexity for employers trying to stay on top of all the changes. In this episode we discuss upcoming new programs as well as updates on existing ones.
     
    Join host Laura Marzi, Group Benefits Chief Marketing Officer, with Meghan Pistritto, Head of The Hartford’s Statutory Disability and PFML product and Susan Tiso, The Hartford’s Regional Relationship Manager in NYC and New Jersey to learn about the status of PFML around the country as well as some of The Hartford’s initiatives. Special guest, Anthony Cortese, Principal and Senior VP for Reuben Warner Associates will offer insight on challenges and solutions for employers in New Jersey.
