The information below is a brief overview of benefit options; however, more details concerning your benefits can be found on the SPD Benefits website.
Health, dental and vision coverage is effective for 18 days beyond the last payroll deduction for individuals paid through the Auditor's system. COBRA information will be mailed directly to your home address of record. You will have 60 days from the date of the notice or from the termination date of benefits, whichever is later, to apply. If the election is made timely and applicable premiums are paid then your insurance is reactivated back to the loss of coverage date.
Life insurance is effective for 18 days beyond the last payroll deduction. Employees may also be eligible to convert or transfer Life Insurance Benefits to an individual insurance policy without submitting evidence of insurability or good health.
All of this information plus the relevant premium rates will be included in the COBRA packet that will be mailed to your address of record.
More details concerning COBRA can be found at www.in.gov/spd/2747.htm.
