It’s fairly easy. Talk to your GP or psychiatrist to agree that STD is appropriate and then notify your firm’s HR claims group. Depending on the state a psychologist may be able to make the recommendation. You’ll give the claims group some information, including you doctors contact inform and have some paperwork to complete. Then arrange you STD absence with your project and practice - they don’t need to know the reason. Most doctors will suggest doing a week or a month at first and then extending it if needed.

Awesome - for some reason I wasn’t able to seek short term disability when I went through my depression. I recall my STD didn’t account for psychological issues and only qualified me if I had gotten admitted to a psychiatric hospital. I’m so glad to read the above, as anyone dealing with depression, stress or anxiety absolutely needs to qualify for STD to help them get better. OP please keep us posted, as would definitely want to share your approval experience with others!

Called the MetLife number to apply for STD. A rep. asked me some basic questions and I told them I need six weeks and then see how much progress I’ve made. then they submitted my claim. They’ll be reaching out to my doctor via fax so he can fill out some forms to approve STD. Hope this helps! DM me if you have any questions

Thanks for sharing this
