Discussion Question

Working while out on STD after giving birth.

I currently work a FT job and do some consultant work from home outside of my job. My job does not have maternity leave so I plan on going out on STD. I would love to increase my consultant work while Im out to supplement my income. Will I be penalized for receiving disability while still technically working?

    Thank you!

    I did this too, and while it may not technically be allowed, it's doubtful anyone will know or come after you to take BACK your STD payments...especially since I assume this is going to relatively lite work given that you've just had a baby.
