I am almost 38 weeks pregnant and has a short-term disability policy back in March. I got pregnant in September, but I had no idea about the disability insurance short term, at that time. So I have not had a policy until March. M is the question , does anyone know if they will see my pregnancy as a preexisting condition colonial Anyone else use for this same purpose , accept it, even get the policy and after pregnancy ?
I know it may be a bit late but I am wondering if there are any companies that you can apply for a short term disability plan AFTER sustaining an injury. We have always had STDI however when our company switched to a new payroll company this year our request did not go through for the STDI but did for all other elections. I didn't even notice until now when we need it as my husband broke his heel and they are saying he is going to have to be out of work for 8-10 weeks. Not good in any situation but I am also 8 months pregnant so it makes matters worse. Any suggestions/advise would be helpful! Thanks.
A co-worker of mine was on short term disabilty for about 15 weeks last year on and off. She just applied for it again. It seems to me like she is abusing it (longer story), but my question is - Is there a limit to how much short term you can take? I believe our policy is if you miss 10 consecutive days you qualify, but is there a limit to how long you can be out at one time? Also, who approves this? would it be my work or health insurance? It just seems a strange that she keeps getting approved (all for different reasons each time she applies).
Ok ... I currently work full time and my company pays the premium for my disability , both short term and my long term disability . I've been working with my doctor (as I'm pregnant ) to find out my maternity leave. Am I eligible for FMLA leave of 12 weeks unpaid . I have vacation and sick leave enough to cover the 16 days (I have a 15-day time -out for short term disability to put in) I am not due until January 17, 2009 . My question is would it be possible to take over the premium payments so that the income they receive under the disability would not be taxed or not there would be a restriction based off of a pre-existing condition ? I have coverage of about 2 years and not close or have a gap, which had just taken control of payments. Any idea if I do over the payments if I would be able to claim short term disability I think the first of February 2009 so it would not be taxable ?
I am soooo stressed at work and feel like I need a break from the routine. I also is going on with other things around the house that make me depressed and not able to function and be productive at work. So what kind of doctor do I have to do to request time off from work. How I can call on the doctor and what if I say no ? I've never done this before, but I need a break from that job!
Hi im 39 weeks pregnant and live in california. i am eligible for sdi.

My 2nd question:: if i get paid every two weeks will they only pay me 85.71 or DOUBLE that (171.42) since its my WEEKLY benefit amount and their only paying me every two weeks. Any advice would help thank you!
I recently had bi lateral knee surgery and I'm almost recovered after 3 months being off work. I do not have short term disabilty through my job until I've worked there a year. I went to the doctor for my 4 week check up and my left knee has a partial tear. It will require surgery, but I do not have to take care of it now. Will it be covered if I wait a few months so I'll have a year in at work? I really can't afford to be off work again for 3 months.
Not sure if this is where I should post this question but I am hoping someone can answer. I'm also hoping to explain this properly ! I work for a small nursery where there is no vacation time or maternity leave. The offer insurance , but is very expensive, so I'm sure plan on my husband. I recently found out I'm pregnant and I have to use short-term disability to cover my 6 weeks off work when they give birth . My doctor will write a note saying I can not work . Although it affects my job, so submit to insurance my husband and he is referring to me? Or has something to do with my business? How I can get maternity leave if I am on your insurance ? I hope someone can help me!
I was just dx with anxiety/depression/personality disorder yesterday and the therapist requested that i do intensive outpatient thereapy 5/days a week for 3 weeks and I have started the FMLA and STD paperwork for my job? Its hard times and the holidays and I am worried about money. Do people generally get approved for this diagnosis? I work for an insurance company (WellPoint) so i know they are a bit more understanding of stress/depression on the job, but I am really freaking out right now because i was dx on my first visit to the dr with no prior treatment for 8 years.

I'm four and half months pregnant with twins, my pregnancy considered high risk pregnancy ! As for my job requires heavy lifting as I am a broker server / food so could not make it , my work put me ina leave of absence without my permission, I said that you can apply for STDs and I understand it, I did apply and was waiting for the last two weeks , I have a call today saying that my policy was approved and will end on October 27 , so basically my policy is only 6 weeks, I am by about February or before that date . As for the double word not normally stay .. my case manager said she'll be in touch with me and if things do not change what is going to extend. ! ! ? ? Things will not change , even after giving birth. I asked about the short-term disability , and she said that after my arrival policy that could apply for it. I wonder why only gave me 6 weeks? and how it will work since I'm not due yet?
I'm 18 weeks pregnant with twins, and been having alot of issues with my left leg recently. I see my doctor on thursday but I'm very worried about bed rest. I just started my new job last week; it took me almost seven months to find a job, and finally I get hired! My question is, how long do you have to be working til you can receive short term disability? I do live in Maine, but I doubt the rules for short term are different anywhere else. Any insight would be great, because I'm stressing out, especially since I'm a single mother, so its just me. Thank you
