Employee and Dependent Eligibility

What Do I Need to Know to Enroll? 

Make sure that you and your dependents/beneficiaries meet eligibility requirements.

U.S. NortonLifelock employees actively working at least twenty (20) hours per week are eligible to participate in NortonLifelock's U.S. Benefit Programs.

If you are rehired by NortonLifelock within 30 days from your previous termination date, your health benefits will be reinstated to your previous elections (unless you have incurred a qualified status change, in which case you may make applicable changes within 31 days of your rehire date). If you are rehired by NortonLifelock after 30 days, you have 31 days from your rehire date to make your benefit elections.

Dependent Eligibility

Family members ("dependents") may be eligible for certain benefits, such as health care and life insurance. You are permitted to enroll or update your benefit elections in following circumstances: when you are hired, during an Annual Open Enrollment event, or if you experience a status change, such as a marriage or birth/adoption of a child. View the Qualified Status Change matrix (pdf)

Eligible dependents include:

  • Spouse
    A spouse is person of the same or opposite sex who is married to the employee (excluding separation and divorce).
  • Domestic Partner
    A domestic partner is a person of the same or opposite sex with whom you share a committed relationship as evidenced by a shared residence and record of financial interdependence. View Domestic Partner criteria
  • Children up to age 26
    You can over your children up to age 26. Medical care for your dependent child(ren) ends with the last day of the month they turn 26. 
  • Disabled children over 26 (in certain cases)
    You can cover your disabled child (at any age), provided he/she was previously covered under NortonLifelock benefits before age 26.

Dependent Eligibility for Overaged Dependents

You may wish to insure someone who is not eligible for NortonLifelock benefits; shop for an outside resource, such as Mercer Marketplace powered by Getinsured.

Individuals not specifically listed here are not eligible for coverage, including those who may perform services for NortonLifelock (such as temporary employees or contractors) and certain family members (such as parents and siblings). An ex-spouse is not an eligible dependent, even if you have a court order to provide health insurance coverage.

Enrolling ineligible dependents constitutes fraud and coverage will be rescinded.

Double Coverage/Maintenance of Benefits (MOB)

"Double coverage" applies to you if your dependents are covered under NortonLifelock's medical and/or dental plans and other medical and/or dental plans. The NortonLifelock medical and dental plans pay claims based on Maintenance of Benefits (MOB). Under MOB, the NortonLifelock medical and dental plans are the secondary plan for your dependents who are also covered under other plans. If the benefits paid by the primary plan are less than the benefits normally payable under the NortonLifelock medical or dental plan, then the NortonLifelock plan will pay the difference between the two plans. If the primary plan payment exceeds the benefit normally payable under the NortonLifelock medical or dental plan, as the secondary plan, NortonLifelock would pay nothing.

NortonLifelock Couples

If both you and your spouse or domestic partner are employed by NortonLifelock, you may not have "double coverage" under the NortonLifelock medical, dental, and vision plans. This means you may not be covered as both a NortonLifelock employee and as a dependent of another NortonLifelock employee for these plans. In addition, you and your spouse or domestic partner may not cover the same child as a dependent for any benefit.
