Dependent Child Turns 26

When your dependent child turns 26, the child is no longer eligible for coverage under the Health Trust. However, the child may be eligible for Continuing Coverage.


  • When your child turns 26, you must notify the Plan Office within 60 days. You will become liable for any health claims paid by the Plan for any services after your dependent ceases to be eligible.
  • Continuation Coverage can continue for up to thirty-six months provided timely payments are made.
