Is dependent coverage the same as Associate membership?edit
No. WAEPA members have two ways to purchase life insurance protection for family members:
- As Dependents – Cover your spouse and dependent children under your own certificate. Dependent spouse coverage is limited to no more than 50% of the member’s coverage, for a maximum of $500,000 depending on the member’s (your) age.
- As Associate WAEPA Members – Enable your spouse to purchase their own insurance through WAEPA. Coverage levels go up to a maximum of $1.5 million depending on age.
