Legal Plan

When Coverage Ends

This section describes the circumstances under which your Group Legal Plan coverage will be terminated. 

TERMINATION OF COVERAGE
Your Group Legal Plan coverage will terminate as of the end of the month following the date: 

  • that your employment with the Company ends for any reason;
  • that you cease to be actively at work (see "When Your Coverage Begins" under Eligibility and Plan Participation);
  • that you become part of a class of employees who are not eligible to participate in the plan;
  • on which you fail to make any required contributions towards the cost of your coverage (or the end of any applicable grace period, if later); or
  • on which the Company terminates the plan. 

Dependent Coverage
Group Legal Plan coverage for your eligible dependents will end as of the end of the month following: 

  • the date your coverage ends for one of the reasons listed above;
  • the date that a dependent no longer meets the definition of an “eligible dependent” (see "Coverage for Your Eligible Dependents" under Eligibility and Plan Participation); or
  • in the case of coverage for your spouse or domestic partner, the date of your divorce or legal separation, or the termination of your domestic partner relationship. 

In the event of your death, coverage for your eligible dependents will continue for the balance of the calendar year in which your death occurs.
