Learn how to set up QuickBooks Payroll to track paid family and medical leave in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire has implemented a voluntary paid family medical leave program, called Paid Family and Medical Leave (NH PFML). The program gives employees paid time off to care for themselves, ill family members, or a new child.
Unlike traditional state-mandated PFML plans, NH PFML is voluntary for both you and your employees. It goes into effect January 1, 2023.

How the NH PFML program works
- This program is optional for both you and your employees.
- Starting December 1, 2022, you can get PFML insurance from MetLife.
- You can get a Business Enterprise Tax (BET) credit equal to 50% of the NH PFML insurance premium you pay (doesn’t cover employee contributions).
- Complete and send form DP-160 to the NH Department of Revenue Administration to claim the BET credit.
- If you purchase other PFML insurance plans, you don’t qualify for the BET credit.
- If you don’t provide coverage, your employees can purchase a NJ PFML individual insurance plan through MetLife during open enrollment, January 1, 2023 through March 2,2023.
- If you have less than 50 employees, you can (but aren’t required to) collect premium payments through payroll deductions. Otherwise, your employees need to make the payments.
- If you have 50 or more employees, you’re required to collect your employee premium payments through payroll deductions. If you pay 100% of their premium, you don’t have to take payroll deductions.
- You’ll need to pay and report the premiums yourself.
