Short term disability quote?

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.

Can an employer fire you for not returning to work while on a disabilty?

it depends what was in your origanal contract if there where a certain amount of days that you where allowed and you exceeded them than yes but if not than he has to provide you with a reason why he fired you

AnswerYes. If I have a stroke tomorrow and can never work again, at some point my employer is going to let me go, unless I quit. If you have a serious illness you can document, you are entitled to 12 weeks of Family Medical Leave (in a 12-month period.) When you return, the employer has to provide you with a job, but not necessairly the same job. It can be in a different location, at a different pay rate, with different duties. The only exception would be if you were temporarily disabled due to a work-related injury. AnswerYou probably mean "... not returning while the DOCTOR says I'm unable to work". Your employer cannot require you to work contrary to medical advice.

Your employer CAN fire you if you are unable to perform even one of the key duties of your job ... unless you have FMLA protection as detailed above. Then you can be fired the day your FMLA runs out. Remember, the employer OWNS the position, no matter how long you've worked in it. The employer can take the position back and give it to someone else at whim, unless limited by a statute or union contract.

How early can you go on maternity leave?

This isn't so much a health question unless you are having problems carrying the baby to term and your doctor has suggested you stay in bed. If that is not the case, it is usually more of a financial question, depending on how many weeks of paid maternity leave you can expect, if any. Whether you can begin getting paid maternity leave before the birth of your baby depends on what your employer allows. -------- At my work the earliest you can leave is 11 weeks before the due week. I believe this is according to the UK law.

Can you work another job while receiving short term disability?

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, there 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.

To qualify for unemployment compensation you have to have lost your job through no fault of your own, or quit with justifiable reasons.

Can you use long term disbility leave for maternity leave?

Probably not. Most long term disability policies have an elimination period of 3 months or more. You will be considered disabled 8 weeks for a c-section delivery - well short of the elimination period.

Check your policy for the exact elimination period. If something happens during your pregnancy and/or delivery that causes a lengthy disability, then you may be paid a benefit.

Most women of child bearing age find short term disability to be a better overall fit. It offers an elimination period as short as one week - meaning your maternity leave will be a covered benefit.

How long is Army maternity leave?

Army policies with respect to pregnancy are general in nature, reflect DoD guidance, and are designed to protect both the rights of women soldiers and the efficacy of the organization. Army regulation states the separation policy for pregnant soldiers is strictly voluntary (unless discovered while in basic training then the separation is involuntary). Once pregnant, Soldiers may choose to remain in the Army or separate. Officers may choose to remain in the Service or request release from active duty, unless they are under obligation to the Army due to education or incentive pay. Soldiers may request ordinary, advance, or excess leave in order to return home or to another appropriate place for the birth, or to receive other maternity care. Leave is at the discretion of the command. T he Army allows a female Soldier to take 6-8 weeks of post partum maternity leave. In addition, the Soldier is not available for deployment for four months following the delivery date for parenthood. The post-partum soldier would also be exempt from taking the Physical Fitness Test for 180 days following the termination of pregnancy.
