Private Disability Insurance Plan (“private plan”) New Jersey employers have the option of providing coverage to their employees through an approved private plan instead of the state plan. If you are covered under a private plan, your employer’s insurance carrier is responsible for processing and paying benefits on your disability claim. If you become disabled, ask your employer for the form you need to claim benefits under the private plan. Who pays for Unemployment & Temporary Disability Programs? These programs are paid for by payroll taxes paid by employers and employees. Your employer is authorized to deduct worker contributions (tax) from your wages. The deductions must be noted on your pay envelope, paycheck, or on some other form of notice. The amount of wages that are taxable changes from year to year. The deduction may be allocated at varying rates to the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, the Temporary Disability Insurance Fund and the Workforce Development/Supplemental Workforce Funds. If an approved private plan is non-contributory, no contributions can be deducted from workers’ wages for disability insurance. Your employer’s contributions are based in part on their employment experience.
