I recently applied for short term disability during open enrollment at my workplace (I work for a hospital system) This was back in Mid-November. I elected to have short term disability insurance. I found out I was pregnant at the end of December. The short term disability is not deducted from my paycheck until January. I am concerned I won't be able to use this wafted I deliver. I plan to use FMLA. Has anyone had a similar experience with STD or have any knowledge of how this works? Thanks so much!
