 Effective Date of Benefits

Your benefit coverage will start on your initial eligibility date.  For example, if your employer makes contributions for you for at least 130 credited hours for work performed in January, your coverage will start on March 1.
If you have dependents on the date your coverage starts, their coverage will start on that same date.  If you later acquire a dependent while you are eligible, coverage will start on the date the person became your dependent.  Your dependent's eligibility is contingent upon your eligibility.
The minimum credited hour requirement for continuing eligibility is 130 hours per eligibility month.  The following table shows how eligibility months correspond to benefit months:
