  • A copy of the front page of one of your last two year’s filed federal tax return confirming this dependent as a spouse, OR documentation dated within the last 6 months establishing current relationship status such as a joint household bill, joint bank/credit account, joint mortgage or lease, listing you and your spouse’s names OR documentation dated within the last 6 months establishing current residency. You may blacken out any financial information.
If you were recently married, you may not have federal tax returns or joint bills. Therefore, we will accept a copy of your marriage certificate. However, you may be required to provide additional documentation at a later date.
 
To enroll your dependent children up to age 26, you must provide the following documents:
  • A copy of your child’s birth certificate, naming you or your spouse as the child’s parent, or appropriate court order / adoption decree naming you or your spouse as the child’s legal guardian.

  • A copy of the front page of one of your last two year’s filed federal tax return confirming showing that you claimed this dependent. You may blacken out any financial information

Dependents turning Age 26:
Once your dependent turns age 26, they are no longer eligible to remain covered under the University System of Georgia Healthcare Plan. As a result, his/her coverage will end as of the day they turn age 26. The system will automatically remove them from your plan(s) and mail a COBRA packet to notify them of their COBRA enrollment rights.
