Has anyone used UNUM short term disability for their surgery? I have it and pay for it every month, but I’m not quite sure I can use it for WLS. I don’t want to ask my HR at work yet cause they are kind of jerks and I don’t want to give them extra time to research it haha. If anyone has any information or experience with this I would really appreciate it!

UNUM administers our FMLA and yes the surgery was covered under short term disability. In my case the short term disability didn’t kick until 5 (or 7 business days) so I covered those first 5 (or 7 days) using vacation leave. You can call UNUM directly and they should be able to answer your questions, no need to talk to HR.

Cheesefiend- thank you so much for your input! That is such a relief! I only have 5 days of PTO, but if I’m able to use UNUM I want to take two weeks off 😂
