Unemployment taxes COBRA premium assistance credit. Unemployment taxes The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) provides certain former employees, retirees, spouses, former spouses, and dependent children the right to temporary continuation of health coverage at group rates. Unemployment taxes COBRA generally covers multiemployer health plans and health plans maintained by private-sector employers (other than churches) with 20 or more full and part-time employees. Unemployment taxes Parallel requirements apply to these plans under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). Unemployment taxes Under the Public Health Service Act, COBRA requirements apply also to health plans covering state or local government employees. Unemployment taxes Similar requirements apply under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and under some state laws. Unemployment taxes For the premium assistance (or subsidy) discussed below, these requirements are all referred to as COBRA requirements. Unemployment taxes Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), employers are allowed a credit against “payroll taxes” (referred to in this publication as “employment taxes”) for providing COBRA premium assistance to assistance eligible individuals. Unemployment taxes For periods of COBRA continuation coverage beginning after February 16, 2009, a group health plan must treat an assistance eligible individual as having paid the required COBRA continuation coverage premium if the individual elects COBRA coverage and pays 35% of the amount of the premium. Unemployment taxes An assistance eligible individual is a qualified beneficiary of an employer's group health plan who is eligible for COBRA continuation coverage during the period beginning September 1, 2008, and ending May 31, 2010, due to the involuntarily termination from employment of a covered employee during the period and elects continuation COBRA coverage. Unemployment taxes The assistance for the coverage can last up to 15 months. Unemployment taxes Employees terminated during the period beginning September 1, 2008, and ending May 31, 2010, who received a severance package that delayed the start of the COBRA continuation coverage, may still be eligible for premium assistance for COBRA continuation coverage. Unemployment taxes For more information, see Notice 2009-27, 2009-16 I. Unemployment taxes R. Unemployment taxes B. Unemployment taxes 838, available at www. Unemployment taxes irs. Unemployment taxes gov/irb/2009-16_irb/ar09. Unemployment taxes html. Unemployment taxes Administrators of the group health plans (or other entities) that provide or administer COBRA continuation coverage must provide notice to assistance eligible individuals of the COBRA premium assistance. Unemployment taxes The 65% of the premium not paid by the assistance eligible individual is reimbursed to the employer maintaining the group health plan. Unemployment taxes The reimbursement is made through a credit against the employer's employment tax liabilities. Unemployment taxes For information on how to claim the credit, see the Instructions for Form 943. Unemployment taxes The credit is treated as a deposit made on the first day of the return period. Unemployment taxes In the case of a multiemployer plan, the credit is claimed by the plan, rather than the employer. Unemployment taxes In the case of an insured plan subject to state law continuation coverage requirements, the credit is claimed by the insurance company, rather than the employer. Unemployment taxes Anyone claiming the credit for COBRA premium assistance payments must maintain the following information to support their claim, including the following. Unemployment taxes Information on the receipt of the assistance eligible individuals' 35% share of the premium including dates and amounts. Unemployment taxes In the case of an insurance plan, a copy of invoice or other supporting statement from the insurance carrier and proof of timely payment of the full premium to the insurance carrier required under COBRA. Unemployment taxes In the case of a self-insured plan, proof of the premium amount and proof of the coverage provided to the assistance eligible individuals.
