Student Dependant Information
Is your dependant still studying?
At the start of every academic year you need to update your dependant’s details on your membership to ensure they remain covered with Teachers Health Fund. Your dependant can continue to be covered under your family membership until their 25th birthday providing they are:
- a full-time student or an
- apprentice or trainee and
- not married or in a de-facto relationship.
How to re-register your student dependant:
Simply complete the online student dependant re-registration form.
Is your dependant no longer studying?
If your dependant is no longer studying, they can remain covered with Teachers Health Fund in one of two ways:
1. You can upgrade to Extended Family Cover
For an additional cost this cover will allow your dependant to remain on your membership until they turn 25, regardless of whether or not they are studying. To get a quote on Extended Family Cover click here.
Please note: Extended Family Cover does not apply to any dependants that are married or live in a de-facto relationship.
2. They can take out their own membership to remain covered
If they decide to take out their own membership they will receive the special offer of one month’s free cover if they join within two months of coming off your cover.
