Overage Dependent Turns 26

Your overage dependent is no longer eligible for coverage under the Health & Welfare Plan when the overage dependent turns 26. The child may be eligible for COBRA Coverage.

Plan Checklist

Items regarding the Health Plans apply only to participants in the Southern California IBEW-NECA Health Plans. However, if you participate in another electrician health plan, it is likely that similar considerations will apply.

  • For overage dependents having reached the age limit COBRA coverage can continue for up to thirty-six months provided timely payments are made. Contact the Administrative Office to obtain the election form.
