How do I initiate COBRA?
Employees separating from employment with the County will receive written notification regarding their COBRA benefits. You must sign and return your election form within 60 days of your termination of benefits or the date of the letter, whichever is later. You have 45-days from the date you elect COBRA coverage to send in the payment for your benefits. Once the above information is received, your coverage will be the first of the month following termination of benefits. You may send payments for your benefits to:
Benefits Administration Division
1400 McCormick Drive
Suite 245
Largo, Maryland 20774

Please contact the Division for acceptable payment methods.
