Local 246 has extended coverage for the children of active members up until the dependent children turn 26. However, active members must enroll these dependent children within 31 days of reaching age 19 or at the time they lose benefits from their own or spouse/domestic partner benefits. Again, there is a 31-day time limit to enroll dependent children for extended coverage. If you miss the time limit, you will have to wait until the following January 1 to enroll. Any active member who has questions about the extended coverage should contact the Union office prior to their dependent turning 19 in order not to miss out.
