had a recent change in life?
If you get married, have a baby, move or experience any other qualifying life event, you have 31 days to make changes to your benefits.
Coverage under Chevron's benefit plans can continue until the end of the month in which your dependent child turns age 26. A dependent child includes your or your spouse's/domestic partner's:
- Natural child
- Legally adopted child
- Foster child
- A child who has been placed with you or your spouse/domestic partner for adoption.
rules for a 'other dependent' child
If your other dependent children get married, they're no longer eligible dependents under the rules of Chevron's benefit plans. An other dependent is a child that is not your natural, legally adopted, stepchild or foster child, or your natural, legally adopted, stepchild or foster child of your domestic partner. Examples of other dependents include grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Contact the HR Service Center to cancel your other dependent child's health plan coverage within 31 days of the date of marriage. Your other dependent child may be eligible to continue health plan coverage under COBRA, if you notify the HR Service Center within 60 days after the first of the month coinciding with or following the date of marriage.
