I am under 26 years old and covered as a child under my parent’s PEBP plan. If I become eligible for PEBP benefits as a state employee, will I need to enroll in my own coverage?

If a child (age 26 or younger) is enrolled as a dependent of a PEBP participant and becomes eligible for their own PEBP coverage as a primary participant, the child has two options:

  1. The option to remain as a dependent.
  2. Enroll on their own as a primary participant.  If the child enrolls as a primary participant, they must be removed as a dependent from their parent’s coverage.
