  • Same- or opposite-sex domestic/civil union partners
  • Your eligible dependent children, including:
    • Your natural children
    • Your legally adopted children
    • Your step children
    • Children of your domestic partner
    • Children placed with you for adoption
    • Your foster children
    • Any other children (including grandchildren) for whom you are the legal guardian as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction


Children are eligible for benefits as follows:

  • Dependent children up to age 26 are eligible for medical, dental, vision, and child life coverage regardless of marital or student status.
  • Unmarried dependent children age 21 and older, if totally disabled, are eligible for dental, vision, and life insurance coverage. Qualifying certification of total disability will be required by the plan.
