7.5 COBRA Continuation Coverage

If a Participant loses coverage under the Active Plan for any reason other than Non-Covered Electrical Employment the Participant may use his/her account to pay the cost of his/her COBRA coverage under the Active Plan and that of his/her eligible dependents.

If a Participant eligible under the Active Plan dies, his/her eligible dependents may use the deceased Participant's HRA Account to pay the cost of their COBRA coverage under the Active Plan. A surviving Spouse shall always have primary control over the HRA Account. If there is no Surviving Spouse, eligible dependents shall have pro rata rights to the HRA Account for COBRA purposes and nothing prevents a surviving eligible dependent from waiving their interest in favor of other surviving eligible dependents for purposes of COBRA continuation coverage under the Active Plan.
