Paid Family and Medical Leave Reporting Starts July 1st, 2019

2019 Quarter 1 (Q1) and Quarter 2 (Q2) reporting and payments start July 1.

Use the checklist below to get ready now!

Get ready for July 1: check these off your list today

  • Make sure you have a SecureAccess Washington (SAW) login.

  • Have your UBI number on-hand. You will need it to set up your employer account (if you don’t know your UBI number, you can look it up).

  • Review reporting formats, requirements, and payment options.

Decide which reporting format you will use and prepare your reports for Q1 & Q2.

If you choose to report via file upload, test your file format to avoid upload errors when you report in July.

  • If you use an employer agent like a third-party administrator, CPA or business manager make sure they plan to submit your Q1 and Q2 reports on your behalf.

Important tip: This is a new program and reporting system, so setting up your account and submitting your first reports and payments may require more time than reporting in future quarters. We encourage you to come into the system as early in July as possible to get your account set up and reports filed before the July 31 deadline.

Resources Employment Security is continuously developing this new program and we are committed to giving you the best information as soon as it is available. Get more information and watch a video overview on employer reporting at
