However, the child has the option of taking up their own Single membership under the member’s coverage. The member should confirm in writing within 30 days of the child’s 19th birthday that they wish to take up Single membership. No 3 month stand down period will apply in this case.

You can change your cover at any time, although if the change involves additional dependant(s), a 3 month stand down period for claims will apply.
