I just wanted to share with you guys this unbelievable crock of a memo I just got from my work.
It says that anyone who is laid off for a week or more( which is me, been laid off since early April) will now have to pay 100% of their insurance coverage premiums. So I call and ask them what I will have to pay to continue coverage and this is what she told me.
"Well for every week your laid off you will have to send us a check for your family health $193.79, Family Dental $16.24, Family Vision $5.45, and all other life insurances which is 5.04 a week. So my grand total I will owe them for every week is $220.52, or $882.08 A month.
I told them, there is no way in hell I can afford to pay this amount a month, its practically the amount I am receiving in unemployment. I cant believe that the company I work for would stoop so low, and stop paying their share of the insurance, and leave all of us laid off workers in the dirt. I AM DISGUSTED!!!
Sorry for the rant, I just couldn't believe this, and needed to vent.
