Does anyone know if there is a required amount of time that you must work for a company before you are eligible for COBRA? I am planning to retire 3/31/08, but I would like to do some part time work in the not so nice weather. There are several 20 hour a week with benefits jobs that I could take. If I do that and leave after 4 or 5 months, would I be able to get COBRA again from that job?

Caroline, the ones that I see most often and would not mind doing are receptionist and elder care giver at a very large assisted living place near us. I'm sure the pay would be pretty low, but I would be taking the job for the health insurance. They just say 20 hours a week with benefits - I have not inquired into how good those benefits are.
