Dental Benefits Eligible DependentsYour eligible dependents are your spouse or civil union partner and your unmarried children under age 19. Dependents are considered your children, if they are your own, your spouse's or civil union partner's natural children, your legally adopted children or a child placed in your home for whom you have begun adoption procedures, or children living with you for whom you are appointed legal guardian by a court and for whom you are financially responsible. Coverage for a child ends on the last day of the calendar month in which the child marries or attains the age of 19, whichever comes first.
Dental Student Dependent CoverageEligible unmarried child dependents between the ages of 19 and 23 who are full-time students at an accredited institution of higher education are included for dependent coverage until the last day of the benefit year in which their 23rd birthday occurs. When the child no longer qualifies as a student, coverage will end on the last day of the benefit month in which qualification ceases to be met. You must submit a student verification form every semester for continuous full-time students. Please contact the Human Resources and Personnel Services department to obtain this form.DELTA DENTAL PLANS
