I can not imagine the vast number that would apply.

I don't think for social security purposes that pregnancy is considered a disability. I know that for disability you have to have a condition that makes you totally disabled and unable to work, I would not think that pregnancy would fall into this definition. I can not imagine the social security administration taking on this responsibilty. I can not imagine the vast number that would apply. And hell by the time they would approve it, your kid would be walking at the least. It is a long process.

Yes I agree. Social security is one of the longest processes there is. It can be years before even getting an approval. I do not feel even high risk preganacies would qualify for social security. I had a sister who had a very high risk pregnancy with alot of complications about mid way through. She looked into different sources to help with her income and was turned away by almost all. One good side of it all is the preganancy does not last long and the person could be readyt for work soon after birth. You are also correct about the numbers being large if social security made this available. Most pregnancies are not a walk in the park so the Social security waiting lines would be extra long.

Oh god, I could imagine how many of our clients would be "disabled", LOL, we make it a point to tell them that pregnancy is not a disability. We deal with a lot of folks on public assistance.

Thats exactly where I think the best place for help would be. The STates Welfare Dept. could issue medical, cash assistance and food benefits for a disabled pregnant women. It would give some help immediately to the short term problem.

There is a limited protection for health insurance under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). But you are only entitled to a maximum of 12 workweeks of "job-protected" unpaid leave under FMLA.



After that, you would have to continue under the provisions of COBRA.

To be eligible for UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE, you are required to be both capable of working and actively looking for work. If you are not intending to work as a pregnant person, then you cannot obtain UI benefits. Also, a voluntary quit may disqualify you from receiving benefits.

Disability has a place in the justice system. So it is important that you know your rights.

I think you can seek the coverage under a private short-term disability policy, if you have one that is.

I guess, you may also get unemployment benefits, if you are working part time and are out of work because of your pregnancy. However, unemployment is usually not related to pregnancy.
