My 3 yo daughter is going to be having brain surgery, I know I can use FMLA to secure my job but can I claim STD so I can get paid?

The answer lies in the disability policy secured as a benefit through the employer. However, I am not aware of one that has extended to a family member. Employers will typically pay you out any stored PTO while you are out on FMLA. This may not cover the full amount of time you need off, but it may help. Best of luck.
