Dependent Eligibility Verification

The Ohio State University is proud to provide access to affordable, high quality health care coverage to support you and your dependents in living healthy, happy lives. We are also committed to being good stewards of the funds used to provide health care benefits. As a result, the university requires employees to verify eligibility for their enrolled dependents. By effectively managing health benefits, Ohio State can direct more resources to the core missions of education, research and service.

Following your enrollment of your dependents, a dependent eligibility verification packet will be mailed to your home address. Alight conducts dependent eligibility verifications on behalf of Ohio State. The verification packet will provide information on acceptable forms of documentation to verify your dependent’s eligibility.

To access the Dependent Eligibility Verification Center portal go to Workday and follow these steps:

  1. Click Menu
  2. Select Benefits and  Pay Hub
  3. Under Suggested Links, select More Benefit Links
  4. Select My Dependent Eligibility Verification (listed under Health and Wellness)

Failure to provide complete documentation by the specified deadline will result in coverage termination for any dependent(s) not verified.
