Converting Benefits at Termination (COBRA)

Date Updated: May 9th, 2012

Employees and eligible dependents may have the right to continue health insurance benefits because of a reduction in hours or termination of employment, through COBRA.

This program provides eligible employees the opportunity to purchase the same health insurance policy that was in effect when they were employed, at the monthly premium charged to the College.

Employees will receive a summary of their COBRA rights during the benefits orientation. At termination of employment, employees will be notified by The Claremont Colleges Benefits Administration Office concerning you’re their right to continue coverage. For questions regarding COBRA, contact a benefits specialist for more information.
