I know they have done this in the past, but was told today that you can't get paid in advance for personal days. I know that at the end of the year, if you don't use your personal days, they give you a check for the remaining days that you didn't use, so why can't they let you have them during the year when you might need them? They have done this is the past for me. Just wondering if this is something new. Reason being, is that I know I will qualify for short term disability for surgery I have coming up and can use that while I am out and would like to have my personal days paid in advance so I can use that money for things that might not be covered by insurance. New insurance only pays 80% up to $1000 deductible, then 100% after that, for certain things. Thanks for your input.
