Are dependent children covered under the Plan?

Thursday, October 24, 2019

Yes, until age 26 (extended coverage may be available for handicapped children). Eligible dependents include:

  • your natural children,
  • your adopted children (and those placed for adoption),
  • your stepchildren,
  • Children for whom you have legal custody and who live with you in a parent-child relationship and who are dependent upon your support and maintenance (such parent-child relationship shall not be considered to exist if either of the child’s parents also resides with you).
