Eligibility, Enrolling and When Coverage Begins and Ends


You are eligible to participate in the Edward Jones benefit program if you work at least 25 hours per week and you are a permanent, full-time associate. Your dependents also may be eligible to participate, if they meet the requirements described here.

Eligible dependents include:

  • Your Spouse or Child who is insured under the Provincial Plan.
  • Your Edward Jones-recognized Common Law Partnership.
  • Your legal spouse, or a person continuously living with you in a role like that of a marriage partner for at least 12 months.
  • Your natural or adopted child, or stepchild, who is:
  • Unmarried;
  • Under age 21, or under age 25 if a full-time student;
  • Not employed on a full-time basis; and
  • Not eligible for insurance as an employee under this or any other group benefit program.

Note: a stepchild must be living with you to be eligible. A newborn child is eligible from birth.

  • You stop paying premiums (for benefits that require a premium)
  • Your status changes to part-time or on-call
  • Your employment is terminated or you retire
