Only for the COBRA Wonks

You may have heard that under Obama’s economic stimulus package, officially known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the federal government will pay 65% of COBRA premiums for people who were involuntarily terminated from their jobs between September 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009. As you might imagine, there are a whole lot of technical specifics used to determine who is eligible. If you aren’t scared of ten-dollar words and bureaucratic verbosity, you can read the official IRS explanation of the plan here.
