If you work in the United States and endometriosis has made you too ill to continue working, or you keep getting fired from jobs because you must take so much time off because of the pain, you can try to apply for disability. The links below can offer you some assistance in filing:
- At The Federal Level (SSDI)
- State-by-State disability info – as found on EmployeeIssues.com (only 5 states offer short term disability).
- Family Medical Leave (FMLA) – can’t get state disability? Perhaps FMLA might help in the short term. Info found on EmployeeIssues.com (You must have worked for 12 months at same place to be eligible for FMLA).
- More info on Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) (as found on FindLaw.com)
- Official FMLA website
