Can you go on short term disability for work stress?
Stress and Anxiety are both difficult conditions to assess when claiming disability insurance benefits. This is because Stress and Anxiety can be difficult conditions to diagnose. Unlike many illnesses, these conditions can not easily be diagnosed using medical exams or tests. Instead much of the diagnosis is based on a patients report of symptoms.

The rule of thumb is that short term disability insurance will cost about an hour's wage per week in order to replace 2/3 of your income for 12 months. For example, a person earning $20 per hour and working 40 hours per week earns $40,000 per year or $3,333 per month. 2/3 income replacement would… equal 2,200 per month of coverage. The cost for this coverage would be $20 per week, or $1,040 annually. Actual cost will be based upon your occupation, the industry of your employer, your state of residence, your age, etc. (MORE)
Answer . Yes. Once it has been determined by your medical doctor that you are able to return to work again, you are expected at work the next day. If you fail to show up for work, the company may consider it a 'voluntary quit' and/or terminate you.
Short term disability replaces your income if you become injured or sick and can't work. The benefit period is limited to 3, 6, 12, or 24 months. The policy stops paying benefits if your disability lasts longer than the benefit period.
Massachusetts does not have state mandated short term disability. You can get coverage through your employer. Just ask them to make a voluntary short term disability policy available to you via payroll deduction. You pay for the policy.
Depends. Basic guideline is if you paid for the policy paying the benefit, then the benefit isn't taxable. If someones else contributed to it, or if it was paid with before tax money (as in some employee packages), then the money is taxable. However, consider the income being replaced would… have been taxed too. (MORE)

NJ has state mandated coverage, and PA does not. The NJ disability plan covers NJ workers, not NJ residents. Check your paystub, and you will see that no deductions are being taken out for NJTDI. Short term disability insurance is available through private insurers for PA workers.
Unless your state was very liberal, to qualify for disability ,of any length, you have to establish your inability to work, and you are still working so it stands to reason you could not collect.

Assuming that you are referring to short term disability insurance, it is intended to replace income when the insured is unable to work due to an injury or medical condition that is not excluded by the terms of the policy. The reference to "short-term" distinguishes the coverage from long-term di…sability, which, assuming conditions are met, can have payments that last for years. Short-term disability policies ordinarily provide benefits from anywhere between 60 days to a year or so. Many employers offer short-term disability coverage as a benefit of employment. The amount of the benefit is usually based upon the employee's earnings at the time of disability. It also usually declines over the term that benefits are paid; for example, it may pay 100% of lost income for the first month or so, and then slowly decline toward the end of the term. Short term disability plans can also be privately purchased from insurers. Like many other forms of insurance, these kinds of policies may be "medically underwritten", meaning that whether or not an applicant qualifies will depend upon health history. Likewise, the insurer will be interested in earnings history, because the purpose of the coverage is to replace income, not to be a money-making proposition for the insured. It is very important to ensure that any insurance that is purchased is issued from a licensed insurer (sometimes called an "authorized" insurer), and that the insurer is authorized to issue insurance in your state. This information can be obtained through the office of the state insurance regulator in the capitol. Be sure to find out from the agent/insurer the name of the entity that is financially responsible for the payment of claims, as it is that entity that must be licensed. A product name that sounds familiar is not sufficient and is not a guaranty. (MORE)
It depends - on your short term disability elimination period. If you live in a state with mandated coverage, check with your state's department of labor. If you have a private policy, see what elimination period you selected. The elimination period can be as short as 0 days for accidents, and 7… days for sickness, or as long as 3 months or more.

Do you have to pay back short term disability benefits if you don't go back to work from maternity leave?
You do not need to pay back the benefits. The insurance paid a benefit for the time you were physically unable to work because of your delivery.
You received short term disability from your work place for a car accident if you settle with the insurance company that is responsible do you have to pay back the short term disability check?
It depends on the STD contract, so whether or not they can do this can vary from contract to contract. The first step is to ask the STD insurance company to provide you with the exact wording in their policy which states that their liability is reduced due to auto insurance benefits and/or settle…ments. Typically such provisions will exist, but almost always it will specify that the reduction only includes the portion of the auto insurance payments that are made for lost wages (or "wage loss benefits" as they are often called). Other monies (such as for the damage to your car, for medical bills, your own lawyer's fees or pain and suffering if applicable) typically should NOT affect your STD benefit, even if they are co-mingled and paid out in a single check. Not always, but often (especially in richer STD contracts), the STD policy will specify only that " No-Fault Wage Loss" (and/or "No-Fault Wage Loss Benefits required by a state or other jurisdiction") will reduce their benefit. These wordings provide a higher (narrower) standard than just merely considering any wage loss benefits, and is a difference worth paying attention to. Whether or not the payments are No-Fault Wage Loss benefits vs. just regular Wage Loss benefits is something probably only the auto insurance company can answer, as it can get very complicated: Some states require no-fault wage loss coverage, some make it optional with special consequences, and driving in a state other than where you live, driving a rental car, a company-owned car, or simply a car that you do not own could also affect exactly what sort of wage loss benefits you are entitled to and how they are characterized. If the disability claims analyst is good at their job, they will verify with the auto insurer what the payments actually represent before making their determination. Most of the time they are correct, and it is likely that you will indeed need to pay some or all of those monies back to the STD insurer. That being said, I have seen in a few rare cases where the STD carrier attempted to collect wage loss auto benefits based on assumptions without actually verifying the details, and ended up being wrong. For example, if the no-fault wage loss auto benefits were purchased voluntarily (not required by law) and the STD analyst doesn't even realize that option is possible, they may make certain assumptions about how it is treated just because they've never seen it any other way. Due to the wording in the STD contract, it is possible that such (voluntary) wage-loss benefits in fact could meet the STD contract's definition of other individual (non-group) STD insurance and therefore untouchable, even though it happened to be purchased through an auto carrier. So you need to be careful and verify it yourself with the auto insurer, STD policy in hand, before you will know for sure if its being handled correctly. Contacting your insurance broker and/or an attorney may also provide you with additional counsel and advice. (MORE)
Finding Short Term Disability (STD) insurance on your own is fairly difficult. This is a very niche market right now and only limited carriers are offering it. Mutual of Omaha is one company that does offer individual STD, but can sometimes be a bit pricey. When looking at individual STD, you shoul…d know that benefits may be limited. Many times, women who do not have STD offered at work will look for this type of coverage when they are thinking of having children. Individual STD will not cover normal pregnancy, or at least not any policy I've ever seen. The easiest way of obtaining STD insurance that will cover pregnancies is to have it offered in a group setting. This does not mean that the employer will have to pay benefits. STD can be offered on a voluntary basis, as long as required participation levels are achieved. (MORE)
Stress can have many effects on a person. The most common ones are fatigue, acne, dry scalp, inflammation of gums or lips, and many others.
Usually not, unless you can prove your injury did not happen at work and having it listed as such was an error (made by someone other than you). I know being injured is the worst, dealing with people who want to give their 2 cents worth about your medical care is the pits, but if you have to be i…njured there are worse things than WC. Not suggesting you (or anyone) should take advantage - just think you should know what you are entitled to. Because WC only pays for these things if you know they are supposed to. (Check out what the particulars are for the state you live in.) Assuming an injury occurred at/or was caused by - work + WC vs STD the benefits to WC : + WC payments do not have to be claimed on your taxes - (STD is taxed) + Receive WC and state benefits if you are taking a hit on take home pay - the amount you receive by WC subtracted from what you are entitled to on STD - STD makes up the difference. +Your ability to see a doctor is guaranteed: If you don't like the doctor WC sends you to, you have the right to a second opinion and after 30 days the right to see a doctor of your choice. +WC pays for many services that most standard insurances won't (like acupuncture - massage - psych care - without deductibles or arbitrary limits - hospital care 100%) +WC doesn't stop paying after x amount of time just because x amount of time passed. +WC pays pharmacy - including OTC - if your doc orders it. +WC pays for other services or equipment (durable medical) that STD won't cover. +WC pays gas mileage. +WC will retrain you if you are unable to return to U&C employment.

Short term disability has a defined benefit that ends at a specified time. For example your policy may have a 3 month, 6 month, 12 month, or 24 month benefit period. If you are disabled for maternity leave you may be able to extend your benefit if your doctor provides a medical reason for why you… can't work. The typical maternity benefit is six weeks for vaginal birth, and eight weeks for a c-section delivery. This leaves room for you to extend the benefits before you reach the benefit period limit. If you remain disabled beyond your policy's benefit period you will not be able to extend the benefits. (MORE)
You are more likely to receive a abscence of leave from work. Any pay received will depend on your contract, history and employment term. If unemployed then there are options.
Your not supposed to do that but how are they gonna find out? I mean Short Term Disability is about 66 2/3 percent of your salary and the burden of proof is on them. The only way an insurance company can find out is if someone reports you and/or something you do becomes public record otherwise, ther…e isn't much of a way for the insurance company to find out. As far as I am concerned you have to do whatever you can these days to survive. Its a dog eat dog world. (MORE)
It depends upon the plan that your employer maintains. Frequently, benefits are on a sliding scale, such as 75% for the first month, 60% for the next month, and 40% thereafter until the benefit expires. The percentages are based upon your earnings at the time of disability, and may be funded via an… insurance policy that the employer has taken out, or self-funded by the employer itself. (MORE)
Alabama does not have state short term disability. You have to buy a private group or indivdual plan.
While you are on leave you have the option of continuing your insurance coverage under the same terms as when you were employed - provided your employer is bound by FMLA. Once your FMLA leave expires and you remain disabled you can continue medical benefits via COBRA.
No one can stop you from going on vacation while on disability but it may cause suspicion or even lead to an investigation in your case. The question your adjuster may ask is "If you are so disabled that you are unable to work, why are you able to take a vacation?" Basically it depends on your disab…ility. If for example, you have a limitation on mobility and you go on vacation, it may draw suspicion. If you tell the adjuster, "I work because I can't walk" and then go Disney World...red flag. If you have a limitation on something like a hand or arm, maybe not so much unless you go on vacation to a place in which physical activity is performed and the use of that hand or arm. (MORE)

How can a disabled worker with a non-work-related injury in Arizona get compensated if he has not purchased his own short-term disability insurance?

Most likely not. Pregnancy will be considered a pre-existing condition. You may be able to get coverage for accidents, and illnesses unrelated to pregnancy. Five states have mandatory coverage: California, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island.
It is possible, however it depends on the particular Short-Term Disability Insurance policy you have. Your disability benefits booklet should be available from the employer. Some group disability policies integrate with Social Security and if you qualify for Social Security benefits, your disability… benefits will be decreased by the amount received from SSDI. Individual Disability Insurance plans can be taken and you have a choice of integration with Social Security (cheaper plans) on non-integrated plans which will pay 100% of benefit if you are disabled, regardless if you are receiving Social Security Disability. These individual plans are portable if you change your job. (MORE)
If your Short-Term Disability Insurance policy has an "Own-occupation" definition of disability, and your second job is not related with your main occupation, you could continue receiving short term DI benefits as long as you are still disabled and can't perform your duties of your main job. That be…ing said, your disability benefit may be reduced as a result of the other income, however. Fortunately, many disability policies have incentives to encourage people to work as much as they are safely able, so it's possible that you will still earn more between both sources of income than you would from just one or the other. It should be noted that if the second job is related and/or the Short Term Disability company can prove that you are able to work at your primary job based on your duties you are performing at your second job, your benefits may stop. The best place to start is to check your policy definitions and verify that your disability due to injury or sickness is covered on an "own-occ" or own occupation basis, and review what it says about partial disability benefits.

Upon proper application and determination of injury span, a valuation allocation is assessed which is based on rehabilitation of the individual and expense incurred (as well as other attributes such as any independent and public assistance measures that exist). Funding may be issued via an establish…ed agent or medium per access requirements deemed accountable. For example: Medical Disability will most likely be in administration via Medicare and Medicaid per limited social security access payment upon a set time - issued a set expiration card per basis of time frame for medical treatment. Also: if food assistance is allocated due to inability to provide the basics for the duration may be issued as a check and/or debit card system with specified approved locations that may be used as all assistance must be documented via private and public agents that must display upon audit an accountability of benefits used per budget expense and the beneficiary receiving such granted assistance.

There may be separate elimination periods for accidents andillnesses, so the answer also depends upon the reason for thedisability. (MORE)
Your question can be interpreted in two ways, so I'll answer them both: The first answer assumes you want to know how to apply for COVERAGE (as in, "How do I get a short term disability insurance policy?"). My advice is to contact an independent insurance broker in your area specializing in life …and health lines of coverage (of which disability insurance is a subset) and ask them for quotes and advice. The National Association of Health Underwriters has a "find an agent" feature that may help in this (in related links). The second answer assumes you want to know how to apply for BENEFITS (as in, "How do I file a short term disability claim with my existing disability insurance company?"). Most disability carriers make it very easy to file a claim on your policy. You should contact them to get the necessary paperwork, or if you went through a broker to buy your coverage you may want to talk to them instead. If you have coverage through your employer you should talk to your HR department or your supervisor on how to file a claim. Many group short term disability plans offer telephonic filing or online filing, which makes the process even easier. (MORE)
