Thank you very much for your patience. The answer to your question is yes. Once you were terminated from your job, you are employers required to provide you your COBRA Documentation. However, keep in mind that if you are considered to have been fired for gross misconduct, then you may not be eligible for these kinds of benefits. At this point, you may not know exactly why you were fired, however unless you did something so terrible that it would warrant being considered gross misconduct, then you will be able to get your Cobra Insurance. Keep in mind that Cobra tends to be a little bit more expensive so be sure that you are doing your best to try to set aside a little bit of cash to help pay for it. . Also, although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions.
