Just received a COBRA insurance letter from current employer - recently got hired by this employer. I’m confused, I thought COBRA was offered after you resigned or are laid off?

Read the letter. Knowing is half the battle, and it'll make you the COBRA commander.

I would start by reading the letter...

Mandatory disclosure to all employees

I did read it, and it said it’s for “informational purposes only” and no action is needed, but isn’t it a bit unusual to receive this letter while employed by the employer? I’ve always received them after I left an employer not during employment...

Ladies I just went to an urgent eye clinic because I had a septoplasty (deviated septum fixed) and started to have eye pain. Had a check-up (front of eye and back of eye) by a resident doctor and he said everything looks good and the pain should go away as I heal. Good news on the health front AND we started talking and he’s my age and also cute and in a respectable profession and we’re both Indian (these things all matter to me). I want to call the clinic and ask for his number…do or don’t?
