Benefits Eligibility

Which dependents can be added to my coverage?

For most plans, you may enroll:

  • Your legal spouse, or your same-sex or opposite-sex domestic partner*
  • Your child under age 26 who is your biological or adopted child; the child of your eligible spouse or domestic partner; or a child who has been placed in your legal custody or for whom you are the appointed legal guardian
  • Your child over age 26 who is incapable of working or self-support due to a mental or physical disability that was present prior to age 26; the child must qualify as a tax dependent of you or your eligible spouse or domestic partner*

For more information, review the Benefits Eligibility Policy. Remember, when you add a spouse, partner or child to your coverage, you must provide supporting documentation to Human Resources to confirm their eligibility.

*For dependent life insurance, only same-sex domestic partners may be enrolled (except Texas residents). For child life insurance, the child must be unmarried and rely on the employee for at least half of his or her annual support.
