MMC Benefits Handbook
You are "Actively-At-Work" if you are fulfilling your job responsibilities at a Company-approved location on the day coverage is supposed to begin (e.g., you are not out ill or on a leave of absence).
Qualifying Event
A "qualifying event" under COBRA includes loss of coverage as a result of your leaving the Company (other than for your gross misconduct); a reduction of hours; your death, divorce or legal separation; your eligibility for Medicare, or a dependent child's loss of dependent status; or, if you are a retiree, loss of coverage due to the Company filing for bankruptcy.
