Can your employer charge back insurance after maternity leave if you decide not to return to work?

Yes they can. Maternity leave is designed to allow you the time needed to have the child and then return to work. If we decide to quit the job then we don't get to keep the benefit. This could be viewed as gaming the system.

How do you extend short term disability?

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.

Conception Dates

How accurately can an ultrasound determine the date of conception?

Ultrasounds measure the size of the fetus to predict a due date and are usually very accurate, within two weeks, so I would safely assume that it would not be off by five weeks. You can ask your doctor, it won't be the first time he or she has answered that question,I promise.

Also it depends on when the U/S is. U/S before 12 weeks of pregnancy are very accurate, plus or minus 2 weeks. After that there are more varibles, babies grow at different rates so they are not as accurate.

If already reviewed approved and receiving short term disability benefits how can long term disability be denied only because they consider the problem to be pre-existing?

If Long Term Disabilty is denying you because on the date of the claim you were in the pre-x period then it would be forever. When the pre-x time is over - then it would cover a NEW claim. Not a pending one. Check YOUR actual policy for exact details. For more information www.SteveShorr.com/disability.htm

Is pregnancy considered a pre-existing condition under Short Term Disability group coverage?

In my experience as an insurance agent the disability insurance policy I can offer specifically excludes pregnancy. Also, from what I have seen with other policies is that since pregnancy is planned, in most cases, it is not considered a disability. It is similar to being pregnant and not being able to be excepted if you apply for health insurance until after the pregnancy.

This may be true for policies sold direct. However, Short Term Disability policies sold as Voluntary Employee Benefits do provide the coverage you are asking about. * When bought preconception, Short Term Disability provides a six week benefit period for vaginal birth - less the elimination period, and an eight week benefit period for cesarean birth - less the elimination period.

You must buy these programs at work, but since you will be paying for the programs, it is very easy to ask your employer to make the option available.

Are you eligible for disability leave if you start a new job when six months pregnant and will only work 10 weeks before you take off?

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.

Maternity and Paternity Leave

Canada short term disability is it taxable income?

If you are referring to Short-Term Disability Insurance, it is taxable if your employer made the contribution, and not taxable if you made the contribution. This is because it is treated as a taxable benefit from employment that you have not been taxed on already.

Please let me know if you are referring to something else.

Thanks,

Unemployment Benefits

Can you get unemployment while on maternity leave?

In the US in most locations yes you can. Though it depends on your exact circumstance. You cannot draw FOR maternity leave.

This link in the Related Link below will go through all the instances where you can and why as well as when you can't and why for most states.

Unemployment insurance is intended for people who lose their jobs. Many employers will hold jobs open during maternity leave - meaning you probably will be denied. If your employer does not hold your job open, then you would have a legitimate claim.

Short term disability insurance is intended to replace your income during maternity leave, not unemployment insurance.

How do you collect disability when your work place doesn't provide it and you are out of work for 4 to 12 weeks due to Maternity leave?

AnswerWhat about State Disability? State disability applies only to people who work in the state. Currently there are five states that mandate coverage: CA, HI, NJ, NY, and RI. If you live in one of these states you will likely get some benefit.

If you live in one of the 45 states that do not, you must apply for short term disability insurance preconception, and your maternity leave will be a covered benefit. Individual plans sold via work site marketing are the only policies that provide maternity leave coverage. It's easy to ask your employer for the option.

Your employer needs only to deduction the insurance premium from your pay, and forward your money to the insurance carrier once a month.
