After arrival

Having a baby is a qualifying event to make changes to your health insurance. You will need to enroll your baby in insurance and submit life event documentation within 31 days (birth date + 30 calendar days).

What documentation do you need?

Birth certificate – The documentation must include the date of birth, employee and child’s name.

Social Security Number – A social security number is not needed for enrolling newborn children. However, the Affordable Care Act requires that Windstream have all dependents SSN on record for reporting purposes. Not having an SSN will result in a tax penalty and may cause issues with processing your claims. Be sure to update your benefit record as soon as your baby’s ID number is available. Visit socialsecurity.gov to apply.
