When Benefits End Direct Link
Coverage ends when you no longer meet plan eligibility requirements. If your employment with Ashford University ends, your medical, dental and vision coverage end on the last day of that month. Your life and disability coverage, access to Flexible Spending Account funds and all other benefits end on the day your employment ends. In some cases, you may be eligible to continue your medical, dental, vision and health care Flexible Spending Account through COBRA by paying the full cost of coverage plus the administration fee.
