insurance co pays during maternity leave?

Can anyone clarify exactly how new mothers are paid during maternity leave? 

I am under the impression that the Short Term Disability of the FMLA act is how you get paid, though I know it varies state to state.

IF I have short term disability through my health insurance at work, do I get paid that way as well?

From what I've been told by HR, the payout is only $170, and it's through the FMLA act so I'm not sure my company covers Short Term.

Can anyone help make sense of this?

  • I was paid straight STD, and it was around $150/week. This had nothing to do with FMLA because I was not eligible for that. The checks came from my company's STD insurer.
