The state of Connecticut financial assistance programs for families having children includes an infertility treatment mandate, family leave laws, and more. Paid leave options are very limited. Purchase private short-term disability to fill this gap.
Many Connecticut workers commute out-of-state into jurisdictions that have mandated temporary disability programs. Those who remain in state must purchase private coverage. Do not assume your health plan makes your income secure.
Purchase short-term disability prior to getting sick, hurt, or pregnant.
