Q. My disabled adult child is covered under my Federal Employees Health Benefits. How can I ensure that she will remain covered by FEHB after I pass on?
A. If your child was disabled before age 22, when you die, she would be entitled to a children’s annuity benefit. That would allow her to continue her FEHB coverage. If she wasn’t disabled before age 22, she would neither be entitled to an annuity nor able to continue her coverage under the FEHB.
