Ending Benefits

When you leave the University, your benefits coverage will automatically end on the last day of the month of your employment. Coverage will also end on the last day of the month in which you no longer meet the plan’s eligibility requirements (for example, due to a reduction in your scheduled work hours.) Coverage for your enrolled family member will end on the last day of the month in which he or she no longer meets a plan’s eligibility requirements. For example, medical insurance coverage will stop on the last day of the month in which your child reaches age 26.

You and your covered dependents may elect to temporarily continue health coverage, at your own expense, as provided under the federal COBRA law. Shortly after the qualifying event, COBRA Management Services will mail coverage continuation enrollment materials directly to you or to your dependent who is no longer eligible.

A summary of your benefits upon leaving the University may be found in the "Benefits at Termination of Employment" document available below.
