Hi preggo, I'm not sure if you can avail private disability policy at this point of time. The insurer may consider your present health condition as pre-existing condition, and therefore, will not cover the current pregnancy.



However, I'll check if you qualify for the social disability benefits. Meanwhile, you too can check out with the government aided programs that help the expecting mothers to meet the medical bills, hospitalization costs and other associated expenses.

Jeorge, I am almost 100% sure there would be no chance for disabilty benefits on this one. You can go read the guidlelines ( I read PA's) and usually it takes being disabled for a year to even get benefits. by this time she would have had the baby and be able to return to work. I agree wiht you about the pre- exsisting condition. Hopefully maybe the poster can recieve other benefits but I don't think it will be through SS...If it would be I would be happy for her.

I agree with JEORGE. 'They' WOULD call it 'pre-existing'. However......(..another comment I agree on..) in every state, there ARE ALOT of programs to help with pregnancies. Maybe the first place you can go to, and ask for information, is your local hospital. Usually..they have programs for 'low income' and 'non-insured' soon-to-become mothers...kind of thing.

It will depend how much money you have on wage record, we always tell people to apply and let the UC office make the determination. What state are you from? Did you work last year? Pennsylvania goes back four quarters of the year to determine eligibility and weekly benefit rates, you will need to go to your states page and put in keyword "unemployment" and see what the rules are for your particular state.

Gn, I have a sister that had a really rough pregnancy a few years back...severe rash and tachicardia..you name it. She tried to file for benefits and was turned down. Here I am taliking about the Unemployment benefits. If they were fired it would be another story. I can not imagine SS benefits for this but know you are very knowledgable in this area. Would they apply?

PostPosted: Mon Dec 01, 2008 6:58 pm   Post subject: 5 months Pregant with reduced hours.  

I've been with my company for 6 years and they gave me home office over a year ago and I was making over $700 weekly. My hours were cut from 40 hrs to 12.5 hrs and I asked them to send me a letter as to why they were cutting my hours, and they did. The letter stated "Due to a slowing economy my hours are being cut." I can't afford to live but I still work for them. I cant find work because I'm high-risk due to my age and thyroid condition. I have no medical insurance and I've applied for medicaid. What should I do? Please help! Should I tell my employer that I'm pregnant.

In Pa as long as you are able and available for work, even if it is light duty, you should be able to file. I know those are the two main issues, ABLE and AVAILABLE, so as far as I can see, you are both, if you are from Pa you should have no problem recieving your unemployment compensation.

As long as they are able and available for work, it does not specify what type of work. So if there is light duty available or some other type of work that is not as strenuous. We always say that pregnant never meant disabled. So yeah, I would think that a pregnant would be as eligible as any, as long as the doctor says that everything is okay and can work. Again it does not specify what type of work.

The best thing for the poster to do is go to their local unemployment office and speak with them in person. They would get the best information for availabke benefits or whether they will qualify there. You can also find a number and call the unemployemnt office in your local telephone book.

In Pennsylvania you can not walk into an unemployment center the way you used to, know it is a call center. Sometimes the line is busy up to 5 days in a row, you have to just keep calling and trying. We have many frustrated people come into the office and their is very little we can do for them except listen, they get so frustrated.

I would just stay on the unemployment, even if your Dr. says that you are qualified by his word, does not mean that you would not go through a long and aggravated process just to get SSI, not even disability. I waited for three years to be approved for Disability, even went to court and still was denied. then I appealed and re-applied, finally was approved. I personally, would just stick to medical leave and unemployment, just my 2 cents.

I hear you chula and the medical leave is the proper thing to do, the employer has these benefits in place for that very reason.



The whole social security system is an awful system to deal with, people that you would not think would get it qualify and get their approval right away, where others who are truley deserving and have worked their whole lives fight their rear ends off to get benefits.



I don't deal with the social security system, I deal with the veterans administration.

Chule why did they deny you so many times, even i n court, and then all the sudden qualify you? It seems like three years was an awful long time.

You can often get a paid pregnancy disability leave for work. That's considered a benefit though. If your job has no benefits, I'm not sure if they will do this for you. I suppose you'd just have to ask them what their policy is. Hope this helps! God bless you! Take care.
