Short term disability in NY

I'm not sure if anyone has asked this before but, does anyone know how much time you get for maternity leave under short-term disability?

Apparently, by the time my due date comes along, I will be one month shy from qualifying for FMLA. My HR rep said I would have to apply for short-term disability but I'm just not sure how much time I would get. The HR rep said she'd look into this, but I also want to do some digging on my own.

Does anyone out there know how much time NY State allows in this situation? Please let me know. Thanks

  • Actually short term disability is not 17% of your paycheck but actually 60% of your paycheck for 6 weeks if you give birth naturally, 8 weeks for C-section. FMLA is only 3 months. Also, most likely you will have to use all your available PTO time and then use your PTO Savings which is 100% of your salary before you apply for the short term disability. You should definitely speak to HR in detail as every employer has different policies.
