Adult Children

Great news!!! When your young adults turn 21, they can still retain their Primary Care, Primary Care Extra, or #care4U cover. All they need to do is apply under the 'Whanau' category and enter your Membership number in the 'Linked through' section of the application form. If they are not participating union members in their own right, they will apply under 'non-union member rates'.
This not only applies to young members turning 21, but all your adult children no matter what age!
