Create seamless paid leave experiences

How Guardian’s approach can help make paid leave administration easier for employers and employees


When employees go on paid leave for family or medical reasons, that’s when your work begins behind the scenes. Your job is to deliver their leave benefits as smoothly and efficiently as possible, so you need leave management options that help you create a reliable, streamlined experience, for you and your employees.  

Guardian offers outstanding efficiency and accuracy

Claims volume can be high, which can result in long turnaround times and inaccurate payments. Based on a review of processing results for PFML and STD claims in 2021: 

  • We process 98% of new PFML claims within 5 business days1 
  • We average 99% when it comes to financial accuracy1 
  • We average 99% when it comes to procedural accuracy1
