COBRA


Under the Federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, called COBRA, a Management Benefits Fund member and his/her spouse or domestic partner and dependent children have the right to continue Fund benefits in certain instances where the coverage would otherwise terminate.

Fund members are eligible for coverage under COBRA if their benefits terminate due to a reduction in hours of employment, termination of employment for reasons other than gross misconduct.

On termination of Fund membership, members have the option to continue medical coverage under COBRA.

Please refer to the Fund Booklet for more detailed information.
