Winthrop University: Human Resources - Benefits - Cobra

Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA)


If you lose health, dental and/or vision coverage due to termination of employment or reduction in hours, or your dependents are no longer eligible for coverage, coverage for you and/or your dependents may be continued under COBRA.  A spouse or dependent of an active or retired employee may continue coverage if the termination of coverage falls within COBRA guidelines. You will receive information on COBRA when you initially enroll in a health, dental, and/or vision plan.

For more information please visit the PEBA Website or pages 29-33 of the Insurance Benefits Guide.
