  1. Hello ms nora yung ligation po ba pwede i file na magna carta.. Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Apple, I checked the list, sorry, walang ligation. Kung bilateral tubal ligation, hindi covered kasi ang purpose is to prevent pregnancy.

  2. hi Ma’am Nora. for schedule po ako raspa due to cervix polyps.
    pwede po ba file magna carta?
    thank u po

    1. Hi eiz, I think so. Walang D&C due to cervix polyps sa list, pero merong endocervical curettage at conization of cervix with or without dilation and curettage.

  3. Hello ngayon ko lang nalaman na may ganitong benefit. Nagundergo ako ng left oopherectomy in 2013,pwede ko pa kaya mahabol benefit ko?i am still employed in the same company.

    1. Hi Vickey, depende na sa company mo, kung anong decision nila, kasi one of the requirements is to notify the company prior to surgery, except for emergency cases. Parang medyo new pa itong benefit na ito in the early 2010s, so hindi pa popular noon, kahit among companies. At yong Special Leave kasi dapat, na-enjoy immediately after the surgery. If you decide so, you can ask your HR kung anong comment nila.

  4. Hi Ma’am asked ko lng po kung pwede po ako mag apply ng Special Leave..
    I underwent fractional and curettage last 19 March 2018 due to abnormal uterine bleeding prob secondary to endometrial hyperplasia

    1. Hi Aileen, ask your HR, kasi requirement ang notification sa employer PRIOR to surgery, except lang kung emergency surgery. Nag-leave ka ba after? Did you file for sickness benefit sa SSS? Kasi baka mas ma-consider kung nag-leave ka, kasi dapat ang special leave ay immediately after surgery.

  5. Hello po..I will undergo diagnostic d and c because of endometrial pathology ..covered po ba Ito Ng magna carta special leave?? Thanks po

    1. Hi Diana, d and c due to uterine pathologies ang nasa list, pero endometrial problems are considered, so i-notify mo lang yong employer mo. Mag-depend na sa documents from your ob-gyne

  6. nag undergo po ako ng D & C blighted ovum …vaginal bleeding po dail di po nadevelop si baby. Tama po ba na nasa minor lang po siya at 2weeks lang po ang paid leave koh?…tnx poh

    1. Hi roma, ang tinutukoy mo ba ay paid leave given by the company under Magna Carta Special Leave? If yes, okay na yan na binigyan ka pa ng 2 weeks kasi ang Magna Carta is for gynecological illness only, hindi granted kung due to pregnancy. Bukod sa gynecological reason, kung sabay ang maternity leave at Special leave, yong difference lang ang ibinibigay, which in your case ay malamang wala nang difference. Na-claim mo ba ang SSS maternity benefit mo na 60 days?

  7. Hi Mam Nora,
    Salamat po sa information.
    First trimester pregnancy ko po, pero sa viginal ultrasound may na detect pong subchorionic hemorrhage and 5 myomas 3.24 cm ang pinakamalaki. Delikado daw po sa baby yung mga na detect. Pwede po ba ako mag file ng magna carta? Thanks!

    1. Hi Lizzie, anong advice ng ob-gyne mo? Perform surgery to remove the myomas and to treat the hemorrhage? Kung ito ang magiging reasons ng operation mo, yes, puede kang mag-file ng Magna Carta Special Leave sa employer mo. Notify them prior to surgery. Get the required documents after surgery. By the way, ano raw ang risk na maka-affect ang surgery sa baby?

  8. Hi Ms. Nora, yung staff po kasi namin biglaan yung operation niya sa myoma niya so basically hindi nasunod yung pag aaply ng special in advance pwede pa po ba siyang mag apply sa benefit nato. Thanks

    1. Hi pam, yes, nakasaad sa DOLE order na kung emergency, hindi required ang prior notification, pero dapat mag-inform yong employee after surgery, maybe the next day or few days after. Magsasabay ang SSS sickness leave at Magna Carta leave. Employer pays the Magna Carta and SSS will pay the sickness benefit.

  9. Hi mam nora ask ko lang po san po ba ito finafie?

    1. Hi Ruth ann, i-file mo sa employer mo. Employer ang magbabayad nito. Notify them about your surgery BEFORE undergoing surgery.

  10. Hi po,2 months pa lang po ako sa company and I was scheduled po for operation.Both ovary and uterus po tatanggalin.Entitled po ba ko sa magna carta?

    1. Hi Riza, sorry hindi ka pa qualified sa Magna Carta kasi employment of 6 months ang requirement. Sa SSS, mag-file ka ng sickness benefit. File your notification with your employer. After your 60-days sick leave, file for SSS partial disability benefit.

  11. Hi, Ms. Nora!

    We have an employee wherein nag-apply ng SSS and at the same time Magna Carta. Pasok naman sya sa Magna Carta. The question is, tama po bang natanggap nya ang SSS benefit and 2 months salary nya ng sabay and buo?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Lec, SSS sickness benefit ba at hindi maternity? Yes, legal ang pagtanggap ng employee ng Special Leave niya from her employer at SSS sickness benefit for the same time period. Yong special leave is based on actual daily or monthly salary at yong sickness is based on her average SSS salary credit for the past 12 months prior to confinement.

  12. Hi Ms. Nora,

    If nagfall po ung procedure sa minor (based dun sa list) but I was advised for more than 2 weeks leave or rest.. paano po yun? Should I use my remaining sick and vacation leaves? How about my SSS benefits? Thank you.

    1. Hi Christia, you hope that your employer will grant you the more than 2 weeks na recommended by your OB. Yong ibang employers, ang sinusunod nila yong kung ilang days ang ibibigay ng SSS. File also your SSS sickness benefit. You will get 2 benefits: from SSS and from your employer. Kung halimbawa, ang susundin ng employer mo is yong sa SSS, go back to work ka na lang after… para hindi ka na kelangang mag-file ng company leave for those extra days. I hope you’ll be okay by that time.
