New Jersey Temporary Disability 2021 Contribution Rates Released

Officially announced on September 24, 2020, by the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the 2021 employee contribution rate will be set at 0.47% of an employee’s taxable wage base; and the employee taxable wage base for 2021 will be $138,200.  This comes out to a maximum contribution for employees of $649.54 per year.

The 2021 taxable wage base for employers is $36,200.

Unlike the state plan, which provides employer and employee rates separately, ShelterPoint provides a total rate for its contributory plans, which is a combined rate of the employee contribution rate and employer contribution rate.  To determine the employer rate for a ShelterPoint plan, simply subtract the employee contribution rate from the total (combined) rate.

Temporary Disability Insurance Benefits will continue to be set at 85% of the covered employees average weekly wage (AWW) over 12 weeks in most cases, capped at $903/week as of January 1st, 2021.  Read more about NJ’s expanded benefits effective July 2020 here.
