I Live In New York. And My Question Is Can I Receive Disability While On Maternity Leave.?

I heard of someone getting disability for that, but I'm not sure.
Maybe you can apply for food stamps & aid (money) from Social Services, temporarily.
DON'T tell them you will be going back to work in 3 months or so, just when you go back to work tell them that you're working full time & no longer need it.
Also, you can apply for WIC.
I don't know if you're working now or how much you earn.
But if it's low enough, you may even qualify for the WIC or the food stamps Now.
You need to find out & if so apply for those things ASAP because it takes A LOT of time for them to get approved.
If you don't have health insurance you can get a statement from the doctor stating your due date & bring that in to Social Services & apply for PCAP - or you may have to go to like Planned Parenthood or clinic or anywhere where they approve PCAP - emergency Medicaid which is effective IMMEDIATELY - that will make it easier for you to qualify for food stamps, WIC & money from Social Services - Social Services is open generally 8 AM - 3 PM (by phone until 4 PM).
Be prepared, if you call them, for a busy signal, the ONLY way you will get thru is by calling REPEATEDLY back-to-back.
Use re-dial.
Good Luck!
