Age Limits Dependent children may be covered through the end of the birth month in which they turn 26.

Now, we only require submission of an affidavit for newly enrolled dependents between the ages of 19-26. You will not need to submit an affidavit if your overage dependent child is already enrolled on our plan(s). The affidavit is in Human Resources, on the Intranet and One-Source.
