Child’s 26th Birthday?

Coverage for a dependent child ends when the child reaches age 26.* For COBRA continuation of your child’s medical coverage, you must notify the Members’ Records Department at the Joint Board within 60 days after the child’s eligibility ends. Your child will then be required to submit a COBRA Application Form within 60 days after the Joint Board notifies your child of his/her right to elect COBRA continuation coverage.

*This rule is effective 10-1-10 for PHBP participants and 1-11-11 for ESF participants.
