Can my disabled child stay on my insurance past the age of 26?

Children who are mentally or physically disabled and not able to earn a living may continue coverage beyond age 26 if they were disabled before their 26th birthday and they were already insured under the State Group Insurance Program.

A request for extended coverage must be provided to Benefits Administration before the dependent’s 26th birthday. The insurance carrier will decide if a dependent is eligible based on disability. Coverage will end and will not be restored once the child is no longer disabled.
