Timeline: Paid Leave for Birth of a Child

For the Birth Mother

This timeline shows the types of paid leaves a mother can use for the birth of a child. This example shows a mother with the buy-up option for short-term disability, but without accrued grandfathered sick time. Please note:

  • You can only use one type of leave at a time.
  • You need to have accrued time in your bank to use PTO or grandfathered sick time
  • If you are not enrolled in the buy-up option for short-term disability, you must exhaust your grandfathered sick accrual balance before you can begin short-term disability.
