The answer depends on when your coverage became effective. Most plans are effective after a time frame (ex: the 1st month following your date of hire, etc.). In order to be eligible your coverage would have to be effective while you are still working and prior to going out. Secondly, it would also depend if your plan has a pre-existing condition limitation. If the answer is yes, your claim would be denied because your condition obviously occured during the pre-ex period. Chances are, there will not be a pre-existing condition limitation in the policy - these are rare in Short Term Disability policies.

How long do you have to have short term disability before getting pregnant?

Your policy must begin before getting pregnant. Try to start your policy at least 3 months before conception. Most policies contain a 9 or 10 month exclusion for normal delivery. Not every pregnancy goes full term. If your policy starts 3 months before conception and you deliver early, your delivery will most likely fall outside the exclusion period - making your maternity benefit payable.
