Life Events - Grad Loss of Eligibility

Dependent children are eligible to be included in your benefits plan only until age 19.


Health, Dental and Vision Plans
Dependent children may be covered until age 19 if they remain dependent on the employee for support and maintenance.

Contact your campus Benefits Office at least 30 days before your dependent child’s 19th birthday to ensure timely ending of coverage and adjustment of health premiums.

The child’s coverage may be continued for up to 36 months through COBRA.  Please refer to COBRA in the Graduate Student Employee Health Plan (GSEHP) Member Handbook for more information.
