Has anyone used short-term disability during your FMLA?

Yeah it’s not too bad. Just need to call national leave center and let them know date of leave, duration, return then call back few days before return. Sign some paper work with Hartford group which runs national leave center requests and then you’ll get paid as normal. You’ll still collect PTO and do not need to charge PTO for this time off. HR has nothing to do with this process and in my case was super useless. I took a leave of absence for medical reason and was easy enough.

At ACN, you use a week or so of PTO and the rest is short term disability for 6 months or something until long term disability kicks in (reduced pay). I used it once, but can’t remember the specifics, and didn’t use the full amount of short term disability.

Lol which STD you taking an extended leave for?

Yep. I’ve always lived in a state that FMLA only means legally protected leave, not pay. Just work with your HR. Guidehouse you don’t need to use any sick leave or any of your own vacation leave prior to your short term disability. Two months at 100% pay then it starts to become less. Long term disability kicks in at the year mark. KPMG you had to use PTO for five calendar days.. so you want to make sure to have your doctor disable you on a day that allows two of these five days to fall on a weekend so you only use three days of PTO. 100% pay for three months, long term disability at a year. Each company is slightly different, but overall pretty easy. If you can, make sure to take out taxes. This usually isn’t automatic and depending on how long you’re out could create a tax bill.

OH! Most companies require you to be employed for a certain amount of time before you qualify... I’m assuming you’ve been there over a year since you’re talking about FMLA, so probably wouldn’t be an issue for you. But if you’ve been there less than a year, this is definitely important to look into as well.

Asking for some advice on an offer received… my current company base gives me 112k, 9 holidays, 20 pto days, 6% match on 401k and employee share purchase plan, individual bonus up to 8.5%. The new offer received is as follows: 110k base, 11 holidays, unlimited pto days, 25k in RSUs vested 100% after 4 years, no 401k match, annual performance bonus up to 7.5% with possibility to exceed it, basic medical, dental, vision plan covered by company. Thoughts on if the external offer sounds competitive?

I’m the one whose ex won’t pay for college - and I have an update. My ex texted me today that he and his wife are buying our son a car (!!) for Christmas. On the one hand, it’s one less expense for me. On the other hand, my ex won’t pay for college and he owes me at least $10K for previous medical expenses, but he can find money for a car - which is a “fun” expense that will get him brownie points with our son. Whatever - my son benefits, but talk about a “Disneyland Dad.” Ugh.
