Eligibility

Who is Eligible?

You’re eligible for coverage if you’re a full-time employee, or a part-time employee working in the United States more than 22.5 hours per week. (The exception is long-term disability coverage. You must be a full-time employee to be eligible 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
  • Please note: If you are adding a dependent to coverage, you will be asked to submit documentation to confirm dependent status if they were not verified earlier this year. Once the election is made, you will have 60 days to submit this documentation. If documentation is not submitted, or is insufficient, the dependent will be dropped from coverage. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the DVS contact center at 1.833.692.6387 and enter option 2 for Dependent Verification in the automated system.

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.
