When your coverage under this Plan ends, and when COBRA coverage ends, if elected, the Fund will provide you with a certificate of creditable coverage that indicates the period of time you were covered under the Plan and certain additional information that is required by Federal law. The certificate will be sent by first class mail within 45 days after your coverage under this Plan ends. If you elect COBRA Continuation Coverage, another certificate will be provided within 60 days after the COBRA Continuation Coverage ends.

The Fund Office will also provide a certificate to you within 45 days if you request the certificate within two years of the date your Plan coverage ended or the date your COBRA Continuation Coverage ended, whichever is later.
