How do employer agents create an account?

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.

You will need an active SAW account and you will need to add Paid Family and Medical Leave to your SAW services before you can log-in and establish your Paid Leave account. Read more about creating a SAW account and adding Paid Family and Medical Leave to your services.

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 agent account.
