Hello - I read what you wrote so far, but could you please clarify precisely what your legal question is?And is your question about your employer or union?Thanks so much - looking forward to chatting with you!
Are you there? If I don't hear back soon, I'll switch your question over to "question and answer" instead of chat.
If you are currently on a health plan and you resign you are eligible to pay for your COBRA group plan for 18 months. Be aware, however, that your monthly cost will shoot up significantly. At the end of the 18 months you'll be allowed to switch to a personal plan.

May I be of more help? Just write back - no extra charge for follow-up questions.
If, on the other hand, I've answered your legal question, please click on "accept" - otherwise, I won't be paid anything at all for my time!
My best, XXXXX XXXXX of luck to you,
Jane Doe Deer
