How many days do I have to sign up for COBRA insurance?

Answer: Under the law your employer must give you 60 days to sign up for COBRA insurance. The sixty day window starts either from the date on the election form or the date you would have lost medical insurance, which ever comes later. One important thing to note is that if you wait until the end of the sixty days, you will be responsible for two months of premiums since COBRA is retroactive to the date you lost coverage.
