Frequently Asked Questions
From your first date of leave, you may receive to up to 12 weeks of income replacement benefits during the course of a rolling 12-month period for most leave reasons.
You may submit more than one claim during this 12-month period, so long as your total benefits do not exceed 12 weeks (NOTE: 12 days of the 12 weeks may be used for family violence leave).
If you will receive short-term disability through your employer, it is important that you check with your employer to understand the terms of the short-term disability policy and how it will interact with your CT Paid Leave benefits. If you have a long-term disability policy, be sure to ask these same questions.
You should ask if the short-term disability policy has language that:
- requires you to apply to CT Paid Leave for benefits and/or
- reduces the short-term disability benefits by the amount of money you receive from CT Paid Leave if you are approved.
Short-term disability policies are private contracts between employers and their insurance companies, so any questions about this should be directed to your employer or insurer.
