Unless you have short-term disability the company offers no maternity leave. FMLA and that doesn't pay you, but you have to be with the company for more than a year to receive FMLA.

Follows California law for this benefit
SAIC is not great IMO about paternity/maternity leave. SAIC does not mention anything about paternity/maternity in any of their Health Benefit documents or websites (ISSAIC, mysaicbenefits, or saicbenefits). Rather, you'll have to call HR to get any info. If the mother is the SAIC employee, they offer the base short-term disability leave (STL), as Federally required, but nothing more (many other companies offer more time off for recovery). Comprehensive leave may also be used (obviously). SAIC is also required by law to allow up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off per the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Beyond that, if the mother is the SAIC employee, she may use long-term disability (LTD) may be used - but using LTD as it can have adverse insurance coverage implications (as well as others). So, if the father is a SAIC employee, this means he may take whatever Comprehensive Leave that has been accrued, and otherwise use the unpaid leave allowed under FMLA. Hopefully he's allowed/able to work from home. SAIC also offers a program called HealthAdvocate as part of their HSA program. Through HealthAdvocate, SAIC will contribute to the employee's HSA depending on when they enroll, and if they keep up with the guidelines of the program. As of Jan 2017, if enrolled in the first trimester, $2k will be contributed; if enrolled within the second trimester, $1k; and third trimester, $500. As a side-note: If you're a SAIC employee unfortunate enough to be stuck with coverage by Anthem Health Insurance, from my experience, having a HSA with HealthAdvocate is the about the only good thing going for you. The delivery hospital bill may be as much as $6000+; with a $4000 deductible, the employee may be stuck paying a large portion of that bill. Tip: call HR as soon as you find out you're expecting.
I do not know the details other than new parents get time off.
