According to Texas Insurance Code Section 1251.151, in order to be considered an eligible dependent, your grandchild(ren) must be claimed as a dependent on your income tax return. If you are an employee or retiree covering your grandchild as a dependent, you should have received information regarding the re-certification of your grandchild. Be sure to submit your Certification Form along with documentation to your Human Resources Office. Accepted grandchild documentation is a copy of the portion of your most recent income tax return that states you are claiming your grandchild as a dependent. You may redact (cross out) any financial information. Contact your human resources office if you have any questions. You have until August 31 to submit your documentation.
