A: DOL has determined that an applicant can claim a dependent child as a member of the family if the child qualifies as a dependent under the four-part IRS test found at http://taxes.about.com/od/dependents/a/Dependents_2.htm
. The test considers relationship, residence, age, and support. All four parts must be satisfied. Under the SCSEP eligibility TEGL, legal guardianship would also satisfy the relationship test, but it is not required for the IRS test.
