NYSIF PAYGO is a simple and convenient way for eligible policyholders to pay their workers’ compensation insurance through approved payroll processors.
Why NYSIF PAYGO?
- Eliminates down payment requirements
- Calculates premium based upon actual payroll
- Calculates more accurate premium payments, resulting in smaller audit adjustments
- Allows policyholders to match payments to cash flow
How Do I Enroll in NYSIF PAYGO?
Using information from your payroll processor, NYSIF PAYGO will calculate workers’ compensation premium based on actual payroll for the period. Most payroll processors are approved by InsurePay, NYSIF’s software provider, to provide NYSIF PAYGO to eligible policyholders. Additionally, if you use Paychex for your payroll service, you may enroll directly with them on their website.
Visit InsurePay to see if your payroll provider is approved. If not, your payroll processor can contact InsurePay at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-951-5469 to be added. Note: Payroll processor ADP is not participating in NYSIF PAYGO at this time.
Once you've emailed NYSIF about participating in NYSIF PAYGO, you will receive an email from InsurePay explaining how to complete enrollment. Once you are successfully enrolled, InsurePay will collect payroll information from your payroll processor, and calculate and remit premium payments to NYSIF.
