After you’re employed with Assurant for 90 days, all benefits-eligible employees will be eligible for up to eight weeks of Pregnancy Leave, paid at 100%. Typically, Pregnancy Leave is six weeks for the birth of a child, though up to eight weeks may be approved based on medical necessity. Click here for more information.
After 90 days of employment, all benefits-eligible parents, whether due to birth, adoption or surrogacy, will be eligible to take four weeks of 100% paid parental leave to bond with their new child. You can take the time off in four consecutive weeks, or split the time and use it in two, two-week increments. Parental leave must be taken within six months of the birth or placement of a child and is in addition to any pregnancy leave taken under the Short-Term Disability plan.
To request Paid Parental Leave, contact Lincoln Financial, Assurant’s disability and leave administrator, by phone at 1-800-213-1939 or online at MyLincolnPortal.com.
