New COBRA Notices Are Now Available on the Department of Labor Website


Just a note to let you know that the updated COBRA model General and Election Notices can now be found at

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 ("COBRA") provides certain employees and their spouses and dependents the right to continue health coverage at the employer's group rates after coverage otherwise would end. COBRA generally obligates employers with 20 or more employees to offer COBRA coverage when coverage is lost due to certain qualifying events, and to notify employees of the availability of such coverage through various notices during and after employment. These notices include a "General Notice" that describes general COBRA rights and employee obligations, and an "Election Notice" that describes the rights to continuation coverage and explains how to make a COBRA election.
