i heard that for example if a company pays you cause your on maternity leave and then you dont go back they can collect the money back at their discretion.. not sure if thats the same thing though

I plan on doing the same thing too - stay at home with baby. I live in CA. To ensure I get paid from my accrued paid leave and long term disability and that I am still covered under my insurance, I don't plan on telling my boss until I am due back. I will work for a few days and then give my 2 week notice (or less).

I thought that you could collect disability if you plan on staying home if you are fired from your job not just quit. If you quit I don't think that you are allowed to collect disability. I would love to have 13 weeks of leave. That would be awesome. We shall see and hope and pray that is possible.

I'm pretty sure you can collect your disability even if you leave. But you can't give your notice before you go out. At the end you would have to tell them you weren't coming back. I'm sure it happens all the time, women tend to change their minds after the baby's born.
Things are so up in the air where I work (my company is getting sold) that I'm hoping to go out on disability and then not have a job to come back to so I can go on unemployment for a couple months.

I am in Washington DC and I am pretty sure that no state lets you get disability even long term for having a baby even if you decide to quit. You only get a certain amount of weeks and that is it. I wish I could stay home permanently with my bundle of joy. I am a legal secretary and licensed beautician and I do hair on the weekends. If I truly decide to build my clientele back up, then I can do it but then there will be no benefits for me and my girls because hubby's benefits suck.


I am the mother of two beautiful girls
Le'Touye' (LaToya) - 17
Jasmine - 10

I am having a boy; his name will probably be Matthew Chase or Kyle Chase.

do any of your states have a state disability or something like CA's Family Leave Plan which allows you to be paid by the state while you take care of a sick relative or bond w/ a new baby???

BEANO,
I plan to do the same thing. I may either give my 2 weeks 2 weeks before I am due to return or my SIL, I like, said she will watch my kids if I return and give 2 weeks notice on my first day back. I want to be able to use my short term disability too. I'm afraid it I check into it, they'll know ahead of time and not decide to "fire" me so I can't collect.

I agree, especially since you are paying for the short-term disability.

Yeah that's what I thought. Kinda stinks cause I am paying for short term disability and want to collect it on maternity leave but don't know if I can if I am not coming back to work.
Although my work doesn't know yet lol

I live in CA & i think you will only get a certain # of weeks paid by disability. 12 or 6 or something like that.
Is your question if you can collect even after you've quit your job??? I wouldn't think so since it is the businesses that put into the pool for their employees. Not 100% though.

Hello lovely ladies :)
Just wondering if anyone knows this. I do not plan on returning to work after the baby is born. Can I still collect disability? I live in Massachusetts.

THanks for the help
