It is very difficult to answer this question without having full details. In the absence of a specific contractual obligation with your employer, you can always quit. The question is whether this will affect your disability insurance. As I understand the situation, your disability will end before the date you plan to leave employment, and I would therefore be surprised if the insurance were affected. But basically I cannot answer this question because I don't understand the reason you have to give 3 weeks' notice -- do you have an employment contract that requires this?
