- under 25 years of age and attending university, college or trade school on a full-time basis, or
- any age if mentally or physically handicapped, provided they are incapable of self-sustaining employment and remain totally dependent upon you for support and maintenance.

- for example, if you want $250,000 (25 units) of coverage, the cost would be $93.00 per year (25 units X $3.72)
