COBRA disability

Q: We have an employee who had a stroke in January. We just terminated him Nov 30, and offered him COBRA. He has elected and wants to know if he can get the disability extension. His SSA award letter says he was disabled as of Jan 9 and the award letter is dated Nov 3rd. Can he get a disability extension if it occurred before his termination or enrollment in COBRA?
