Registered disability benefits policyholders can access claims payment information at any time through their NYSIF online account. Once you've logged in, simply choose "Claims Payment Report" from your home page. Enter the beginning and end dates for the period you’re interested in, and run the report with a single click.
NYSIF generates Benefit Activity Report (“BAR”) letters for all disability benefits claims in order to provide FICA information to policyholders for tax reporting purposes. These letters are created any time there is a payment from or credit to a claim, and sent to the policyholder on the day that the claim activity occurs. These letters are also created with quarterly and annual summaries and mailed to policyholders.
Paid Family Leave Benefits
Paid Family Leave claim information can be accessed by logging into your NYSIF online account and accessing the Claims Payment Report. This report provides employers with a listing of benefits paid and adjustments made under their policy. Please note, employers have no responsibility to report on paid family leave wages; it is the claimant's duty to manage and report this taxable income. NYSIF will provide 1099s to all claimants at the end of the calendar year.
Policyholders should notify NYSIF immediately if a claimant returns to work or if the claims information provided does not match their records.
