Department of Labor Issues Model COBRA Notices

March 19th, 2009

Today the US Department of Labor issued revised COBRA notices which are intended to help employers comply with the new COBRA provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The notices can be found at

The key deadlines regarding the notices were detailed in our earlier Short Reports, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Imposes New COBRA Burdens on Employers and The New COBRA Subsidy Law—Action Steps. Employers will have to work quickly to tailor the notices for their use and may need to incorporate some state mini-COBRA law provisions.
