Adding a new dependant
The following are the various events to enrol dependants for coverage within 31 days of such event:
- New Birth – copy of modified Personnel Action Form (PAF) required
- Adoption - copy of modified Personnel Action Form (PAF) required
- New marriage - copy of modified Personnel Action Form (PAF) required
- When enrolling a new born the effective date of Coverage is always the new born’s date of birth. (DOB)
Cessation of coverage
Coverage ceases automatically following a separation from service. For re-instatement staff members must re-apply within 31 days of being re-appointed by submitting an application and PA to Insurance. Coverage may also cease for staff members transferring to another pay rolling duty station or department and re-application may be necessary for coverage to be reinstated.
Note: Voluntary termination of medical and/or dental coverage can only be requested during the Annual Enrolment Campaign period.
