If You Need to Take a Leave of Absence
For information on application and approval of any and all continuous and/or intermittent leaves of absence, FMLA and/or short-term disability benefits, you should inform your manager, Human Resources and New York Life.
Follow your department’s call-in procedure on or before your first day or partial day out of work. Tell your director when and for how long you plan to be absent, arrive late or leave early for a qualifying Family and Medical Leave, Leave of Absence or Intermittent Leave.
Contact New York Life within your first day or partial day out of work at 888-737-3855.
Provide details and inform New York Life about your illness, injury or pregnancy including symptoms and/or diagnosis, doctor, hospital or physician visits, including dates and contact information.
In order to approve or deny your leave request, New York Life will review the details of your leave request and may request information from McLeod, your physician or hospital. New York Life will send you
a letter that explains the decision to either approve or deny your request, along with your necessary next steps. If you have questions, contact the HR Service Center at 843-777-2595.
