  • I'm in NY. But I was able to collect disability for 6 weeks. It was only $175 per week though.

  • depending on how far along you are, you can get short term disability through Aflac. You can get up to 80% of your normal pay..I got $1600 for 12 weeks.

  • you can use short term disability...however, you have to have it in place or they will consider it a "pre-existing" condition...stupid but that's the way it works...if you don't already have it and have been paying into it, then you won't be able to get it. I started paying into mine in December and had my daughter the following November...I recieved $1300 every 2 weeks. it was a percentage of my pay.

  • just start saving like mad... I took a 12 week unpaid maternity leave with no short term disability, aflac or anything else
