Can I apply if I don't have a Social Security number?
Yes, you can apply if you’re lawfully present even without a Social Security number (SSN) as long as one of the following is true:
- You’ve applied for a SSN
- You don’t qualify for a SSN due to your immigration status
- You do not want to provide your SSN for religious reasons
If your family member doesn't have a social security number, they can still be included on your plan if they have lawful immigration status.
If you or a family member don't provide an SSN on your application, you’ll need to provide appropriate documentation within 90 days.
