Short Term Disability Pay After Pregnancy?

Postby az90 » Thu Sep 28, 2017 5:08 pm

I have medcost insurance and am entitled to 12 weeks of unpaid leave from my company when the baby comes. My short term disability pays 60% of my salary, but this I'm told is only for as long as my doctor okays me for. I'm told the standard is 6 weeks. I need to take the full 12 as it's our first child and I have no family here to help me with him. Of course I'd love to have the full 12 at 60% rather than only 6. Does anybody have any experience with this?

Short Term Disability Pay After Pregnancy?

I dealt with a Short Term Policy for my maternity leave, and the standard is 6 weeks. If you deliver by C-section it becomes 8 weeks. Generally, it cannot be increased unless your doctor were to certify that you had a medical problem that would require extending it.
