When do my benefits end?

Health Insurance Coverage:
Employees who have health coverage will be covered through the end of the last day of their full-time employment. For example, if your last day as a full-time employee is January 15, coverage would end at midnight on January 15. You will receive a letter regarding setting up optional COBRA coverage shortly after your employment terminates.

HSA and 401(k) Accounts:
The funds in these accounts are yours, but you may be responsible for account maintenance fees. You are free to transfer or rollover these funds within the limitations of the account type and IRS regulations. Other rules or limitations may apply.

Other Benefits:
Most other benefits will also terminate on your last day of full time employment. You will be notified by mail with instructions for any benefits that have an option for continuation at your own expense.
