MA PFML Act

In 2018, Massachusetts signed into law a statute that provides paid family and medical leave (PFML) to workers. 


As an employee benefits advisor, Firmin Insurance & Benefits can help you understand the new law and how it applies to your business. 


We are helping employers understand their requirements and options.


Through our carrier partnerships we also offer a private plan that qualifies for exemption from the state plan. Contact us today to discuss whether a private plan exemption makes sense for your organization.

Group Dental, Vision, Life and Disability Plans

Employee benefits are an important part of your companies culture. A well rounded benefits plan not only attracts & retains good employees, a comprehensive benefits package will also help define your culture providing for a rewarding and energetic workplace with high moral and productivity. 


Firmin Insurance and Benefits is proud to offer Group Dental, Vision, Life and Short and Long Term Disability programs.

Voluntary Benefits

Voluntary Benefit policies are different than major medical – they are focused on you, not the doctors or hospital.. Voluntary Benefits Pay YOU cash when you or a family member has an injury or illness. Benefits help fill the gap between what health insurance pays and where your out-of-pocket expenses begin.


Plan options include: Life Insurance, Disability, Accident Indemnity Plans, Critical Illness and Cancer plans, Hospital Indemnity Plans, and Telemedicine.
