North Carolina parents with children frequently turn to short-term disability insurance when taking time away from work. Unfortunately, the state does not offer a program to workers in private industry.

New policies exclude pre-existing health conditions. Find options for assistance if you arrived too late. Request a quote if the timing is right.


North Carolina parental leave laws allow mothers and fathers to enjoy 12 weeks of unpaid time off for people in the private sector – if they qualify for FMLA, which many do not.

Meanwhile, many taxpayer-supported state government workers get 8 weeks off at full salary so they can bond with their newborn baby with no worries.
