Q: I retired several years ago on a disability pension. Since then I have gotten a divorce. Can my ex still get cobra thru my old employer. I live in NY if that matters.
A: Yes, your ex-spouse would qualify for COBRA, but only if the following requirements are met: r -Your previous employer had more than 20 employees; and r -Your ex-spouse was on the group plan at the date of the divorce.
For more details on your specific plan, you may want to speak with the HR department at your previous employer, or ask HR for the COBRA Administrator’s contact information.
