Does anyone else have IMRF (Illinois municipal retirement fund) through work? It pays for disability including maternity leave. Anyway theres a 30 day waiting period with no pay then you get 50% of last years salary but its only for 4-6 weeks (which is included in the 30 days of no pay). So technically i will get my benefits for only two weeks at the most. Im just upset. How can they or anyone expect a mother to return to work after 4-6 weeks of giving birth to her child?! My employer will allow longer but obviously without pay. Two weeks at the most at 50% salary? And then the rest $0? Maybe im being irrational but i just feel this is not right! Am i missing something? Are there more options?
