FEDERAL EMPLOYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (FEIN)
When a group changes their FEIN, Insure Oklahoma needs enough time to verify this change with the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission (OESC). Frequently, OESC records will not reflect the change for three or more months. We must be able to verify the employer complies with OESC rules.
When you are helping employees enroll, please let them know they must report all income and household members. This includes their spouse, children and all income such as social security, self-employment, child support, disability payments, etc. Our audits are showing some members not eligible and they indicate they received help applying from the agent. When the member is identified as applying incorrectly, we are required by the Federal Government to recoup all funds expended on their behalf. This is a difficult and unfavorable situation for Insure Oklahoma, the member and employer.
PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP FOR EMPLYEES AND SPOUSES
Employer attestation forms can only be used for the employees. The form must be filled out, signed and dated by the employer. The form is a legal document attesting that all the employees are citizen of the United States or qualified alien under the Federal Immigration and Nationality Act. The employees’ spouse will still need to provide one item for proof of U.S. Citizenship and one item for proof of identity. Citizenship Requirements
