Washington, DC – Phyllis C. Borzi, Assistant Secretary of the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) today released the following statement regarding the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) and the recent extension of the premium reduction under the COBRA subsidy:

“I am pleased Congress has acted and the President has signed the Fiscal Year 2010 Defense Appropriations Act. The act extends the eligibility period for the ARRA premium reduction for an additional two months (through Feb. 28, 2010) and the maximum period for receiving the subsidy for an additional six months (from nine to 15 months). Millions of unemployed Americans and their families will be better able to afford and keep their health benefit coverage because of this new law.
