Question: I'm applying for myself and my husband. I currently have a job and indicated income for myself on the application, however my husband is temporarily unemployed. Even though I didn't claim any income under his name, after I submitted my application I was asked to submit proof of income for him.From the look of it, my application won't be considered "complete" until all documents have been submitted, so I'm really not sure what to do.
Answer: Generally you have 90 days to submit the proof of income. My guess is that the eligibility screen is locked up due to the reason code chosen during the Special Enrollment Period, not due to the need to show proof of income. I strongly recommend that you find a Certified Insurance Agent to help you with the application. It doesn't cost you anything and will save you considerable grief.
