What is COBRA and how does it effect me?
COBRA is a federal law that was passed in 1985. It allows certain individuals to continue to receive benefits under employer-sponsored health plans even after those individuals are no longer employed by that employer. To find out if you qualify for COBRA benefits contact your Personnel/Human Resources Department.
