The Short Term Disability Plan provides benefits when you are unable to work for medical reasons, including pregnancy/childbirth. Short Term Disability benefits may be paid before and/or after the baby is delivered.
The length of your available disability benefit period depends on your years of benefit service and the number of disability days already used. (See Non-Industrial Disability Benefits for the maximum schedule of benefits and Non-Industrial Disability Benefits – Requalification for details on requalifying for the full schedule.)
Your available Short Term Disability schedule is used only when you are unable to work for medical reasons. If your available schedule exceeds the amount of time you are disabled, before or after giving birth, you only receive disability benefits for the time you are disabled.
