Are You Eligible?

You’re eligible for Dominion Energy’s benefits if you’re a regular, full-time or part-time nonunion employee who is scheduled to work at least 1,000 hours during the year. Contract employees (also known as “leased” employees) are not eligible.

What About Your Family?

You can cover these members of your family in your health care and life insurance benefits:

  • Your legal spouse for whom you have a valid government issued marriage certificate.
  • Your children under age 26 and your children over the age of 26 who are not able to support themselves because of a physical or mental disability. (You may be required to provide proof of the disability from time to time.)
  • A person of the same or opposite gender who qualifies as your domestic partner.
  • Your legal ward under age 26 for whom you are appointed legal guardian, provided that he or she qualifies as your dependent for tax purposes.

Your dependents serving in the military who are covered by military medical are not eligible unless they are your child under age 26.

When you enroll your dependent, you’ll need to provide proof of their eligibility—such as a marriage certificate, birth certificate or adoption certificate. You’ll be notified of the documentation needed and the deadline for providing it.

Defining Children

Your children are natural children, legally adopted children, children placed with you for legal adoption, foster children and stepchildren.

A disabled child is one who:

  • Became disabled before age 26;
  • Was enrolled in the Plan at the time they became disabled (or if you are a newly-hired employee with a child that is already disabled, the child was covered under your previous employer’s medical plan immediately prior to being covered under Dominion Energy’s plan and is enrolled immediately upon your employment);
  • Remains continuously enrolled in the plan following the disability; and
  • Qualifies as your dependent for tax purposes (i.e., you can claim him or her as a dependent on your federal income tax return for the year).

For more information about what qualifies as a disability, refer to Social Security Administration standards or the summary plan descriptions.
