Mini-COBRA - New York

From the Complete Payroll Labor Law Library.

 

Overview of Law

New York’s mini-COBRA allows employees to continue their coverage for up to 36 months. Each individual certification of coverage must contain a notice of the right to continue coverage. Employers should provide an employee with a notice of their COBRA rights by first class mail as soon as a triggering event occurs.

For additional information, contact your insurance administrator.

Mini-COBRA

COBRA is a federal law that allows many employees to continue their health insurance benefits after their employment ends. Because federal COBRA only applies to employers that have 20 or more employees, many states have adopted their own versions of the law, which are known as “mini-COBRAs.” Usually, a state’s mini-COBRA is triggered by an employee’s termination or death and often extends coverage to a spouse or dependent children. Sometimes there will be an exception to coverage or an employee will have had to work for a minimum period of time to be eligible.

In the current business climate, owning a small business is very difficult. Having a payroll company that can eliminate all my potential headaches and concerns in one facet of the business is so important. I cannot imagine using anyone other than Complete Payroll.

What I love most about Complete Payroll is the quick resolution and response. There are not many issues, but like anything in life, issues happen and the way they are dealt with is the true testament of a person or company. And Complete Payroll is the best at acknowledging the issue and resolving the problem quickly. My rep is fantastic to work with and I refer Complete Payroll whenever I can!

The team at Complete Payroll does an amazing job taking care of all our payroll needs. The Evolution Software is so user-friendly and whenever I do have a question Andrea is right there to help me. I have worked with several payroll companies over the past 31 years and moving to Complete Payroll back in 2011 was one of my best decisions. It’s difficult to find an organization that is so dedicated to their clients but Complete Payroll never disappoints. I would highly recommend that everyone head over to Payroll Country. You’ll be glad you did.

Hunt Hollow Ski Club has been using Complete Payroll Processing for all our payroll needs for many years. We've tried other companies from time to time but always return to Complete Payroll. The main reason is because we have an assigned payroll specialist who knows our needs inside and out, is knowledgeable, easy to reach and very responsive. My questions and concerns are addressed in a VERY timely manner and I never feel that I have to handle sticky issues alone.
