Give ne back my hat!

If you quit on the first day of the month

Do you get health insurance for the other 30 days?

I ask because you traditionally give notice where your last day is a Friday, and in December that's the 1st.

It totally depends on the company's policies, or maybe the individual state's laws.

We can't help you.

I had employers cut off my insurance mid-month.  Others gave me until the end of the month.

Mid-month cutoff sucks, because you wind up paying for a partial month of COBRA you don't need (as most employers start on the 1st).

The COBRA law was the best thing that Clinton did!

You do NOT need to pay in advance for COBRA insurance. You can simply go about your life. If you have a medical emergency, you can pay for COBRA insurance AFTER the fact! (Then you have to pay for all the days that you have been without insurance. And you have to pay your part and the part that used to be paid by your employer.)

I think you have 60 or 90 days after separation to start COBRA.

Nice!

One bad bit - if your employer goes bankrupt, no COBRA.

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (or COBRA) is a law passed by the U.S. Congress on a reconciliation basis and signed by President Ronald Reagan that, among other things, mandates an insurance program which gives some employees the ability to continue health insurance coverage after leaving employment.
