(a)Type of enrollment. A former spouse who meets the requirements of § 890.803 may elect coverage for self only or for self and family.

A child must be under age 26 or incapable of self-support because of a mental or physical disability existing before age 26. No person may be covered by two enrollments.
(b) A child is considered to be the child of the former spouse or the employee, former employee, or employee annuitant if he or she is—
(1) A natural child; or
(2) An adopted child.
(c)Child incapable of self-support. When a former spouse enrolls for a family enrollment which includes a child who has become 26 years of age and is incapable of self-support, the employing office shall determine such child's eligibility in accordance with § 890.302(c), (d), and (e).
