    Any lawyers out there?

    Have a quick question that I can't find an answer online.

    Do you have to be on short-term disability for a certain amount of time before you are valid?

    I had surgery on June 24th and I'm going back to work tomorrow 7/8/09. Is this too short of a time period to be considered a STD?

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends on your policy. Usually you have to satisfy so many hours off of work, yes, but that can vary. Sometimes its 40 hours, some policies it's more. You just need to call your disability carrier.

    Some companies make you use all of your paid time off first and then start with short term disability. It all depends on the plan that your company chose.

    Sexually transmitted diseases need not last any period of time to be considered as such. Moreover, if it required surgery, it must have been one nasty case. Best of luck in your recovery.

    Not only did I stay in a Holiday Inn last night I have extensive experience watching MASH and other medical shows. Further, I once saw 10 minutes of Scrubs. I think my resume speaks for itself.

    It all depends on your policy. Not to many work places even offer STD anymore. LTD, yes, but most of those have1, 3, or even 6 month wait periods (deductible).


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    STDs are an employer provided option at some places of work? What kind of sick perk is that?
