Special Enrollment Opportunity to Extend Dependent Child Coverage to Age 26
Effective June 1, 2011, the plan will cover dependent children up to age 26, regardless of circumstances such as being a full-time student, being married, or place of residence. Specifically, the Plan will cover eligible dependent children as follows:
The Plan will cover your eligible children through age 25.
Children will not be required to be students.
Except for a disabled child, an under age 26 child’s residence, financial dependence and marital status will not affect eligibility.
The Plan will exclude any child age 19 or older who is eligible for other group coverage through the child’s employer or through the employer of the child’s spouse, regardless of whether the child enrolls in such coverage. (This provision will not apply starting June 1, 2014.)
To enroll your child(ren), please complete this special enrollment form. Coverage will not begin until the first of the month following the month the Fund Office receives your enrollment form.
