Dependent Benefit Coverage

The benefit coverage offered to eligible Westmoreland County employees is also offered to the employee's spouse and dependent children with proper verification (marriage license/birth certificate). Dependent children cease to be covered when they attain the age of 26.

Also, should any dependent spouse or child cease to be a dependent, it is the responsibility of the employee to notify the Human Resources Department immediately. Failure to do so may result in the employee being responsible for expenses incurred by dependents who are no longer eligible for coverage. Any questions concerning the eligibility of a dependent for coverage should be directed to the Human Resources Department.

Also, should the dependent child's name differ from the employee's name, the employee is required to attach information to the verification that includes the employee's name and social security number.
