In cases where a collective bargaining agreement, other written agreement, or any legal obligation requires employer contributions for laid off employees paid to the Fund; the eight weeks of TeamCare Layoff Coverage will begin the week after the employer paid contributions cease. Members who continue to be laid off at the end of the TeamCare Layoff Coverage may elect COBRA for continued coverage. You will be receiving details directly from TeamCare shortly. Please contact TeamCare with any questions.
