New York State Insurance Fund

Welcome to the New York State Insurance Fund

The New York State Insurance Fund (NYSIF) was established in 1914 as part of the original enactment of the New York State Workers' Compensation Law. NYSIF's mission is to guarantee the availability of workers' compensation insurance at the lowest possible cost to New York employers and to provide timely, appropriate indemnity and medical payments to injured workers, while maintaining a solvent fund. Since inception, NYSIF has fulfilled the dual roles for which it was created: to compete with other carriers to ensure a fair market place and to be a guaranteed source of coverage for employers who cannot secure coverage elsewhere.

More About NYSIF


Tax Filing for Paid Family Leave

December 14, 2018

Claimants who have received Paid Family Leave benefits from NYSIF in 2018 will receive a 1099-G form by January 31, 2019. Box 1 of the 1099-G will provide the claimant's total Paid Family Leave benefit payments for 2018. The claimant must report the total benefit payment amount as income at the time of tax filing.

This differs from the process for disability benefits, in which all disability benefit payments are reported by the employer on the employee’s W-2 form.
