(The exception is long-term disability coverage. You need to have at least 30 hours a week to be eligibile for long-term disability benefits.) Your Eligible Dependents If you’re eligible you can cover your: Legally married same-sex or opposite-sex spouse Children up to age 26 Same-sex or opposite-sex domestic partner Domestic partner’s children Unmarried dependent children (regardless of age) who are mentally or physically incapable of self-support Note: Eligible Dependents are defined differently for the Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). Keep in mind that IRS law prohibits the tax-free reimbursement of health care expenses through an FSA or a Health Savings Account (HSA) for domestic partners and their dependents unless they are qualified dependents under IRC Section 152.
