Human Resources and Security Specialists should use this tool to determine the correct investigation level for any covered position within the U.S. Federal Government.
Your married or unmarried child is covered under your Self Plus One (if they are your designated covered family) or Self and Family enrollment until his/her 26th birthday. However, your child's spouse and/or children are not covered.
Once your child is married, he/she cannot be covered as an eligible dependent under your FEDVIP enrollment.
If you have him/her listed as your "One" under a Self Plus One enrollment or under your Self and Family enrollment, you must remove him or her from your FEDVIP enrollment immediately through your BENEFEDS account. However, even if you do not remove him/her from your account, he/she is not covered and you are responsible for any benefits paid in error on his/her behalf.
If the marriage means your coverage should now be a Self Only or Self Plus One enrollment, you can decrease your enrollment type from 31 days before to 60 days after your child's marriage as a Qualifying Life Event at www.BENEFEDS.com. Don't miss these dates, or you will have to wait until the next Federal Benefits Open Season to make the change and may be paying a higher premium for coverage you cannot use.
If you do not have access to a computer, call BENEFEDS at 1-877-888-FEDS (3337), TTY 1-877-889-5680.
Your child is no longer eligible. A "family member" is defined as an unmarried dependent.
This event does not allow you to enroll in FSAFEDS or change a current election.
This does not affect their eligibility to apply or their coverage (if already enrolled).
