I haven’t but my wife is currently using it as she’s in the same boat. Seems to be fairly easy from what she’s said.

Super easy. Just complete the form after you had the baby and let Deloitte know. They will deduct the benefit amount from the paycheck.

Haha, no you cannot double dip....

Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!

Any recommendations on how to navigate personal taxes with an actual advisor?
