You are able to add your spouse, domestic partner, children and eligible stepchildren to your coverage. You may also drop your coverage if you elect coverage through your spouse or domestic partner’s plan. You may enroll your dependents in benefits at any time. However, if you wish to drop coverage or elect a new PEBTF plan you must submit the proper documentation within 60 days of the date your spouse or domestic partner became eligible for coverage.
Please consider the following if you wish to enroll your dependents in your benefit coverage. If you were hired after August 1, 2003 and your spouse is eligible for medical benefits through their employer, they must enroll in their employer benefits for primary coverage. They can then be added to PEBTF benefits under secondary coverage.
If your spouse/domestic partner is already enrolled in your benefit coverage as a secondary and they lost their primary benefits due to job loss or position change, documents may be submitted to PEBTF to change the coverage to primary.
Domestic partners and children of domestic partners who are enrolled by December 31, 2019 are eligible for PEBTF coverage through December 31, 2020.
