Affordable Care Act requires dependent Social Security numbers for medical coverage

The Affordable Care Act (aka Health Care Reform) requires employers to send dependent social security numbers (SSN) for those covered on a Purdue medical plan to the IRS, along with the dependent’s medical plan election. Please take a moment to review your dependent’s information in Benefitfocus to ensure their SSN information has been entered and is valid.  If your dependent does not have an SSN to enter, you may disregard this message.

To access Benefitfocus, use the OneCampus Portal. Find the “Benefit Enrollment – Active link” and click it to log into Benefitfocus.

Once logged into Benefitfocus, click the gold button “To Enroll, Make a Change, and View Your Benefits CLICK HERE.”  In the menu on the left, click Dependents.  Under Actions, click Edit next to your dependent’s name. Review the SSN for that dependent for accuracy. If you need to make a change, click Show and Edit just beneath the number to enter a new number, then click the black Save box at the bottom of the page.  If no change is needed, click Cancel at the bottom of the page. Please be sure to do this for any dependents (spouse and children) you will be covering any time in 2019.
