Third Party Administrators (TPAs)


Third party administrators, or TPAs, will play a critical role in ensuring many Colorado employers are set up for success and remain in compliance with the requirements of the FAMLI program. 

Here’s what you need to know to best support the employers you serve:

  • All employers will need to register and create an account with My FAMLI+ Employer before the first premium payments are due on April 30, 2023. TPAs will be able to register on behalf of their employer clients. Instructions on how to register your clients will be published here once My FAMLI+ Employer is live. 
  • My FAMLI+ Employer will deploy in a phased approach in the fall of 2022. All employers will have access to register by January 2023. 
  • Employers will need to facilitate payroll deductions from employees starting January 1, 2023. 
  • Starting in 2023, premium payments and wage reports will be due on the same schedule as is typical with Unemployment Insurance. If an employer fails to submit wage reports and premium payments, the employer may face a fine of up to $50.00 per employee whose wages are not reported. The 2023 schedule is:
    • April 30, 2023 - A 30-day grace period will be offered before the first premium payments and wage reports are considered late. 
    • July 31, 2023
    • October 31, 2023
    • January 31, 2024
