I worked company about a year and 8 months before I became

I worked for a company about a year and 8 months before I became ill with what was later diagnosed as End Stage Kidney Disease. I initially took 3 months of Short Term Disability, which was provided by the company. I then applied for and was accepted to be covered under Long Term Disability (LTD), for which a very small premium was deducted from my paycheck, twice a month. With my LTD, I receive 60% of my salary, after deducting for Social Security, and retained my same health insurance coverage. .. Because of my age, now 68, my LTD is scheduled to continue to October 15, 2016 or my getting a kidney transplant, whichever comes sooner. Then,week before last I received a letter from my company's HR department, saying my employment was being terminated as of April 8th, 2016, I will retain the LTD salary benefit of 60%, after Social Security, but my health insurance is cancelled after the end of this month. If my company is covered under FMLA and I have LTD, are they required to maintain the insurance coverage I had when I was working? .

Sword, it's been 58 days since I left my company

***** ***** Sword, it's been 58 days since I left my company and I am still waiting for my packet to extend insurance through my company. I have been told by several people at my company and by cobra that everything is in process. Even one person at cobra told me it was mailed out two week ago - still nothing in the mail and today I spoke with a person at cobra that told me she does not see anything from my employer. I feel like I'm getting the run around and everyone is lying to me. Why would this be? I thought they had a legal obligation.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I worked for Wawa Inc. for 15 years and retired early at 58 years old. I checked with my company before I retired and was told by them that they offer the same coverage to me that I had through cobra for 18 months after I leaveJA: OK got it.

The company said the payments were her responsibility and since she hadn't worked in several months the payments hadn't been deducted from her pay.My wife is a RN and worked for the company more than fifteen years.Should the company have paid the premiums to maintain the policy?
