Can dependents who lose coverage due to divorce or legal separation enroll in COBRA?

Yes, dependents who are removed from the employee's group insurance plans via a Qualifying Event with the reason as divorce or legal separation, are eligible to enroll in COBRA. The employee or dependent can notify the COBRA administrator for enrollment.

If your company offers COBRA through Zenefits' COBRA partner, COBRA Complete or Accrue, and if the dependent is eligible for COBRA, the dependent information will be sent to the partner. The COBRA election notice packet will be sent to the dependent's address as per Zenefits records. If your company is administering COBRA outside of Zenefits, please contact your company administrator.
