1011. Can former employees be considered for retroactive coverage?

Ordinarily, only individuals in an employment relationship on a specific date, set out in the agreement, can obtain retroactive coverage for services. However, under certain conditions, a State may consider former employees, whose earnings were incorrectly reported to the Internal Revenue Service, to be in the coverage group for the period of retroactive coverage.
