I work for a health insurance company and we have the worse medical benefits!
What's the usual maternity leave benefit? Any moms in MA?
My job covers 6 weeks!!!
8 weeks if you had a c section or complications.
It's not paid at all.
My salary is about 40k. To be covered for the whole 6weekd you have to buy additional short term disability. You can only use this during weeks 1-3 and the pay is $45 dollars a week!
Then weeks 4-6 you can use that and the short term disability which is $400 a week!
The only option is if you don't have the additional coverage is you only get short term from weeks 3-6 and its only $400 a week. With the other it would be $445!!!
I'm thinking of getting Aflac or other supplemental coverage!
Shed some light!!

Here is a basic link to FMLA. And then your state may impose additional requirements, but you'd have to look that up yourself - it varies from state to state. HR might help. I live in TX and worked for a small company (under 50 people) so my employer didn't have to give me squat. They chose to offer up to 6 weeks of unpaid time off but I had to use all my vacation and sick time as part of it.
