When you add a dependent to any of your health, dental or vision plans you do not need to show the actual SSN card to the benefit provider. You do need to add their SSN into SAP which will transmit that information securely to the benefit provider. If you do not enter an SSN you may experience a delay in enrollment and issues with claims processing.
SDPEBA is working to eliminate the use of your SSN as an identifier, but many providers require the information for enrollment and claims processing.
