Continuing Benefits Coverage Under COBRA
If your employment at USG ends, you may have a right to temporarily continue your USG benefits coverage.
The right to continue benefits coverage was created by a federal law, the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA).
Once USG employment ends (for any reason other than gross misconduct), COBRA continuation coverage will be offered to the employee and any qualified beneficiaries. Each qualified beneficiary will have an independent right to elect COBRA continuation coverage. Covered employees may elect COBRA continuation coverage on behalf of their spouses, and parents may elect COBRA continuation coverage on behalf of their children.
