The maximum age for a qualifying child is under the age 22, unless they are studying full-time at a recognised school or tertiary institution, then cover will continue until age 26. Mentally or physically disabled children of the main member who are totally and completely dependent on the main member will be covered as long as the main member is eligible for benefits.
