Dependent Verification Requirement

If you will be covered under the UIUC’s Student Health Insurance in the Fall (’19) and plan to enroll your eligible dependents, you will need to provide documentation verifying their dependent status. This verification is needed in order for the dependent to be added to or to remain covered on the plan.

Beginning with the Fall 2019 semester, any student wishing to include dependents in their insurance coverage must submit verification information. Dependents will only need to be verified once.  Any changes or additions will require the verification process to be completed.  

Included below, is a list of acceptable documents to verify dependent status:

  • Marriage Certificate 
  • Birth Certificate 
  • 1040 Tax Return (1st and last pages w/ signatures)
  • J1/J2 or F1/F2 Visas (needs to include dependent names)
  • Civil Union Certificate
  • Military Discharge Papers 
  • MD Attestation (disabled dependents over 26)
  • Guardianship-Court Order of Letter signed by a judge, awarding legal guardianship

At least one of the above documents must be provided, for each dependent, prior to their enrollment being completed. Documentation must be provided directly to Student Insurance, via fax, in person at our office (details listed below), or via secure upload.
