Enrolling Family Members
Important Note: Enrollment for the plan year is Closed Enrollment. No Spouse/Adult Dependent can be added to your plan unless there is a Qualifying Event.
If you’re a new employee, you may enroll your family for certain benefits under Choices, including medical, dental, vision, life insurance and AD&D coverage. Eligible family members include your:
- Legal spouse, as defined under Montana law, or one other unrelated adult dependent as defined in the Summary Plan Description. To enroll an adult dependent other than a spouse, you will need to obtain criteria from your campus Human Resources Office and complete a Declaration of Adult Dependent form.
Eligible family members include your:
- Dependent children under age 26*. Children include your natural children, stepchildren, and children placed in your home for adoption before age 18 or for whom you have court-ordered custody or you are the legal guardian.
*Coverage may continue past age 26 for an unmarried dependent child who is mentally or physically disabled and incapable of self-support.
