You should really address this question to your husband's union representative.
Generally, however, your employer does not have to continue paying its portion of your benefits, although as to health insurance, you have the right to pay 100% of your benefits under COBRA. Additionally, you may not be eligible for unemployment compensation, food stamps or welfare.
