Qualifying life event coverage now available for disabled dependents 26 and older

Effective immediately, disabled dependents age 26 and older can be added to Texas Employees Group benefits Program (GBP) coverage with a valid qualifying life event (QLE).

Until now, employees could add these dependents only:

  • during Annual Enrollment
  • during their initial enrollment period as a new employee
  • within 30 days of the  dependent child’s first disability-related medical treatment

If employees want to add eligible dependents to coverage with a QLE , they need to provide ESO with proof of the QLE. They also need to submit to ERS the Application to request or renew coverage for a disabled dependent child at age 26 or over within 30 days of the QLE.

The ERS website has more information on coverage for disabled dependents, eligibility and procedure to apply.
