No, members don't need to enter a SSN to register, just a student ID number.
To register an account on the MyBlue app for your spouse or dependent over age 18, you'll need to add their SSN to your school file so that it can be transmitted to us. Once we receive their SSN, it will take four days to process before your spouse or dependent can register on the MyBlue app.
If your spouse or dependent chooses not to provide their SSN, they'll need to answer additional personal questions when creating a MyBlue account.
If your spouse or dependent doesn't have a SSN, student ID, or any personal history in our system, they won't be able to create a MyBlue account. If you have questions about using the MyBlue app, or about your health insurance, benefits, or claims, call (617) 495-2008.
