Updated COBRA Model Notice

The Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration COBRA page now has available model notices updated for the extension provisions of the 2010 Department of Defense Appropriations.

Document Excerpt

ARRA, as amended by the Department of Defense Appropriation Act, 2010 (2010 DOD Act), mandates that plans notify certain current and former participants and beneficiaries about the premium reduction.

The Department created model notices to help plans and individuals comply with these requirements. Each model notice is designed for a particular group of qualified beneficiaries and contains information to help satisfy ARRA’s notice provisions, including those added by the 2010 DOD Act.
