Employees will receive correspondence directly from Aon Hewitt’s Dependent Verification Center and are encouraged to respond to such correspondence as soon as possible. Dependents who are not verified in accordance with the terms included in the correspondence received from Aon Hewitt’s Dependent Verification Center will not be eligible for coverage on PGCPS’ group health plans. Additional information is available here.

    • Employees who fail to provide timely notice (within 30 days of the qualifying event)
      • May be financially liable for outstanding claims for ineligible dependents;
      • May be financially liable for repayment of the Board’s share of paid health care premiums for ineligible dependents;
      • May be financially liable for repayment of claims paid for ineligible dependents;
