Did you know? Pregnancy is the most common reason for filing a short-term claim
A quarter of short-term disability claims are related to pregnancy and childbirth, according to the Council for Disability Awareness.
Depending on your policy and how you deliver your child, you might be eligible to receive benefits for six to eight weeks. If you have a high-risk pregnancy or experience complications, hypertension or postpartum depression after birth, the benefits might be payable for longer.
The catch? To qualify for short-term disability benefits, you must purchase the policy before becoming pregnant.
