It’s time to update eligibility records for over-age student dependents, who are, or will shortly be, over the age of 21. In accordance with the McMaster Extended Health Care and Dental Plans, coverage automatically ceases on your dependent’s 21st birthday unless you notify Human Resources of their full-time student status. HR requires this confirmation on an annual basis and kindly asks that you provide this confirmation for the upcoming 2019/2020 academic year by August 31, 2019. In order to respond to the Student Affirmation Notification, you can access the self-service menu in PeopleSoft using the following pathway:
Main Menu > Human Resources > Self Service > Benefits > Dependent Student Affirmation menu
Click the Student list
Click the “YES” or “NO” list item.
Click the Save button
Please act on this notification by August 31, 2019 or your dependent’s coverage will be terminated in Sun Life. For more information on this process review the Qualification of Over Age Dependent resources on our Sun Life Benefits web page.
