Topic: College Student Verification
Your Question/Comment: We provide pension benefits for eligible survivor children who are at least age 18 but less than 23, not married and are full-time students. We require the student to submit a form completed by the college or university verifying full-time enrollment.
We have encountered issues with the colleges and universities releasing enrollment information upon us calling to validate the submitted form.
For Pension funds that provide benefits for survivor children that are college students, what verification processes are used to obtain student enrollment?
