I've been worrying about whether or not I will be approved for my insurance. I think it's because they had called me a couple of days ago and needed additional information from me. She was telling me that they needed my birth certificate. She said that they needed to see my orginal BC not a copy. She never said anything about a certified copy or not, I didn't ask because I thought that I had my original. But all I have is a certified copy. What happens if they won't except that? I've been on this insurance in the past, stupid me I let it lapse but wouldn't they just recognize that I've been approved for it before? I mailed out everything they needed yesterday wish me luck, I really don't need to run into problems with this. When I mailed everything out and talked with my mom I was certain that they would except a certified copy, I mean who doesn't? But now I'm not so sure and worrying, thinking about the what if's. I need this insurance!  sad

Thank you Eli, I'm probably worrying over nothing but the thing is, I don't have my original BC my dad does and he lives in another state. They also only have 45 days to find me eligible and I wouldn't have enough time to get it from him if I need it. But that's me thinking about it again! I can only hope and I prayed about it lastnight........I know this all probably sounds stupid......

I kind of think that as long as it is certified, it should slide through.

Best of luck to you. let us know what happens.

Hi Wish, I would think a certified copy would be fine.  I assume you mean one that has been notarized, with the stamp impression.  How many of us have our original birth certificates any way.  It is strange that they would want to have your original.  If you got a certified copy from your state's Dept of Records they should accept that.  Most people never send an original document - it is too risky because what if they don't return it.  So I think you should be OK.  A copy is going to look the same as the original- what's the difference. Good luck and let us know what happens.

Aurora,

Your post makes perfect sense! Not that I didn't already believe all that but I just tend to worry. Thank you! I've decided to leave it alone and just see how it turns out. I'll definately get on here and let you all know what happens.

Hope,

I really think that your certified copy will be good enough. If you were to send for another birth certificate from the state, that is what you would get. So go for it. And I hope that you get your disability.

Hey Hope,

If a certified copy with the state seal on it is good enough for Social Security then it will be fine for insurance.  What if your original was destroyed............. idea

You will be fine sweetie.

Hugs
