High Risk Pregnancy and Disability Benefits

How old are you?

A California reader who was on complete bed rest for a pregnancy aksed about disability benefits. To receive Social Security Benefits (federal) one has to show that the condition lasted or will last 12 months or longer. At this point, it does not appear to qualify. However, this type of complication can cause longer lasting ill effects. In California, there is a program for workers who are on pregnancy leave.In California, there is a short term program for paid family leave which can occur when a person is pregnant or when a person has to take off work for 6 weeks or longer to care for an ill child or parent.
