I'm glad you found the answer! Keep in mind that you may be eligible for FMLA
, protected time off work for health reasons for yourself or a family member, once you've been there long enough...usually one year.
I didn't read my employee manual well enough when I was hired and found out way later than necessary. Read it and clarify anything unclear with HR.
If they offer life insurance that you can take with you if you are no longer employed there, seriously consider it! If they offer long term disability, take the buy-up option if available.
Finally, if you have short term disability benefits and have to use it, make sure you send a W2 to the disability carrier right away and claim more exemptions, or they may withhold 25 percent for federal taxes.
I hope that's helpful 😊
