Help with health insurance
I don't usually post political stuff here, but this is worth passing on to everyone. If you know anyone who is struggling to cope with COBRA costs, there's a provision in the stimulus bill that offers significant help.
Short-term COBRA subsidy for involuntarily terminated workers. This provides a 65 percent subsidy for COBRA premiums for up to 9 months, which will put a dent in the considerable cost of COBRA health benefits for the unemployed.There's much more non-health care related provisions at the link that you probably already know about, but this one was new to me.
