Workers in Georgia who have recently been terminated should carefully consider whether they can continue to be covered under the employer’s healthcare plan and pay only 35% of the normal COBRA premium.
As part of the Stimulus Package that recently have taken effect, involuntarily terminated workers who are let go by March 31, 2010, must only pay 35% of the normal COBRA payment to remain under the employer’s health plan. The balance of the payment is repaid to the employer in the form of a federal tax credit.
COBRA is complicated and often confusing. Those workers in Georgia who have been fired, should carefully review all documentation to determine which rights and benefits they are entitled to under the law.
