Can I add a dependent child to my membership?
If you're on a single membership:
To add a dependent child to your membership you'll need to change from a single to a family or single parent membership. If you do this within two months from the date of their birth or inclusion in your family unit (eg. through marriage, adoption or fostering) your child won't have to serve any additional waiting periods. The change will be backdated to the date of birth or the date of inclusion in your family unit. Also, this change of membership means you'll pay higher premiums.
If you're on a couple or family membership:
You can add a dependent child to your membership at any time and they won't need to serve any waiting periods already served on the membership. Adding a dependent child may affect the premiums you’ll need to pay.
