Can I enroll a dependent without an SSN on my insurance?
If you're a new parent who needs to enroll a newborn within 27 days of their birth (a qualifying life event), you don't need to provide an SSN when adding your newborn to your existing coverage. Newborns often don't receive an SSN until several weeks after their birth, but must be enrolled as a dependent within 27 days of birth.
If you're adding a dependent during your initial or open enrollment period (and not through a QLE), you will need to provide:
- the dependent's SSN*
- US resident address. See this page if your dependents are not US residents.
- Date of birth
Thank you for the feedback!
