    Does anyone know after you are fired at UPS if your benefits are cancelled immediately or do they wait till after your hearing at the panel?

    It usually takes about 3 to 4 weeks for them to catch up. UPS contributes to our benefits weekly, so when you are fired UPS will stop contributing and it takes the insurance company a few weeks to catch up that they are no longer paying. When you get the letter for COBRA payments then you should know.

    It's been over a month now and they are still active.

    I've seen guys reinstated with 6 weeks only to have their benefits cancelled anyway and bills start showing up 3 months down the road. It's a real hassle getting everything back in order again.

    In my area,you have to work 160 hrs in 1 month then your good for the next 6.

    If they cancel it they have to send you a letter in the mail stating that and giving you the option of cobra. They can't just cut you off.

    its 6 months from your last month worked here. you will usually receive COBRA paper work in the mail 2-4 weeks before your coverage runs out.

    Was told the first sat after you are fired. But that was a long time ago. Good luck

    You shouldn't lose any benefits until your case has been adjudicated....

    Meaning.... a final decision.
