A.Yes. Your child is eligible for TRICARE benefits until they turn 21, or 23 if they are enrolled full-time at an institution of higher learning that is approved by the Secretary of Defense, Department of Education, or state agency. They must be dependent on the sponsor for over 50 percent of their financial support. The sponsor or the dependent has to submit documentation through the sponsor’s personnel office or at the nearest uniformed service ID card issuing facility so their eligibility can be reflected in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System.
