Dependent Coverage

If you have dependents under your insurance plans (other than a spouse or domestic partner), please ensure you are aware of the age limit on each plan:

Federal Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP): Unmarried children are covered up at age 22.  Dependents who are incapable of self-support by reason of mental or physical incapacity that occurred before the age of 22 may continue to be covered. 

Gallaudet University Delta Dental Insurance (non-FEDVIP):  Unmarried children are covered up to age 19 or up to 25 as long as they are unmarried and are full-time students.  Dependents who are incapable of self-support by reason of mental or physical incapacity that occurred before the age of 19 may continue to be covered.  When children lose eligibility, it is possible to continue coverage for up to 36 months through COBRA.  Under COBRA, the employee is responsible for 102% of the premium.  

Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program: Children may remain covered under FEHB until age 26, regardless of marital status.  Once they turn 26, it is possible to continue coverage under the Temporary Continuation of Coverage (TCC) for up to 36 months.  Under TCC, the employee would be responsible for 102% of the premium.  

Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI):  Unmarried children can be covered under Option C (Family Life Insurance) up until age 22.  Dependents who are incapable of self-support by reason of mental or physical incapacity that occurred before the age of 22 may continue to be covered. 

Gallaudet University Standard Life Insurance: Unmarried children are covered under the Dependents Life Insurance until age 21 or up to 25 as long as they are unmarried and are full-time students.
