How do employers create their Paid Leave account?

Watch the Register as an Employer tutorial video or find written instructions below.

Once you’ve logged in and selected Paid Family and Medical Leave from your list of services in SAW, you’ll click “Continue” to proceed to creating your Paid Leave employer account.

On the “Create an Account” page, select the “Create an Account” button to the right of “Employers”.

Enter your business’s UBI number and click “Next”. If the UBI is valid, the screen will indicate there was a record found and will display your UBI and the legal entity name associated with your business. If the information displayed is correct, you’ll click “Next”. If it’s incorrect, select “Previous” and reenter your UBI number.

Once you’ve located your business by UBI number and have confirmed the legal entity name, there are two possible next steps:

  • If the email address associated with your SAW account matches the email address on your business license, your account will be automatically verified, and you’ll continue to enter your business’s contact information. Before you continue: the person who completes this process becomes the account administrator and will need to add additional users to the account before anyone else can have access. Read more about adding additional users.
    1. On the “Enter Contact Information” screen, enter the name, phone number, email address and mailing address you would like us to use if we need to contact your about your employer account, quarterly reports, balances, payments, etc.

    2. Once you’ve entered your contact information, click “Submit”.

    3. If you have multiple businesses with separate UBI numbers, you will need to complete the account registration process for each one. You can do that by selecting “Add/Switch Account” on the upper right-hand side of the screen, just below the menu bar. Read more about adding businesses to your account.

  • If the email address associated with your SAW account does not match the email address on your business license (or if no email address was listed when you initially applied for a business license), you’ll need to verify your account with a PIN. 

    1. On the “Verify Your Account” screen, if the mailing address displayed is correct, select “Continue” to have a PIN mailed to that address. An informational message will appear at the top of the screen telling you a PIN has been sent. You should receive the PIN in three to five days. Read more about what to do when your PIN arrives.

    2. You can still file your quarterly reports and pay premiums now by continuing with limited access.

    3. If the address on the screen is incorrect, select the blue “limited access” link to continue to file your quarterly reports and pay premiums with a limited access employer account. You will be able to return to update your address in the future.
