Insurance for my fiancé before he gets permanent residency

Ok...I'm sure this has been asked but I can't find any clear answers. When my fiancé gets here, will he be able to be covered by my insurance once we get married or will that have to wait until he has his temporary green card? (Which seems unfair). Is there a way to get insurance for him that doesn't suck? I have decent health insurance but I'm so confused by this. I'm worried he may need surgery within a month or so of his arrival-nothing major. But I'd rather not delay his arrival in order for it to be covered. Any help would be welcome. Thanks in advance.


I am the petitioner.

You should be able to to add him once you get married - they may ask for SSN so make sure it's first thing he gets. Other than that, you should be fine.

You can add to insurance as soon as you are married. My wife is already on my insurance and she is still waiting on approval of her AOS.

He can apply for a SSN after POE, so you can put him your insurance. Make sure he applies for the Social Security Card before you guys get married, otherwise he would have to wait till he gets his EAD (few months after filing for AOS).

Sound advice that has been offered. You can always talk to your employer. That's what I did. They said she only needs a SSN & I have to show them marriage certificate. She comes on Dec 31 in the afternoon. So I can't get her SSN then or the next day. But we will go on Jan 2. Then on Jan 10, we'll marry. We'll be out of town from that time until Jan 12 & I go back to work on Jan 13, so I will add her to my insurance on the 12th or 13th.

Me and my fiancé are planning to do exactly the same thing. Going to the SSA office a few days after POE, then getting married and then he adds me on his insurance. :)

It sounds so great that you guys will start the New Year together! ^_^

Thanks everyone for your help! He has his interview on December 19th & truthfully I expect him to be her right around new years. This is a huge weight off my shoulders. I had no idea I could apply for his social security card so soon. Thanks again!

Well a Dec 6 POE sounds nicer LOL. I know you'll enjoy starting your life here next week. I'm happy for you. The New Year's Eve life start date is interesting to me though. I'm excited about it. We'll wed on the beach on South Padre Island, Texas because she is an earth element and I am a water element and earth and water meet on the beach. I'm into that kind of stuff. We even have matching water/earth yin-yang tattoos that she drew. We got those together on our 1st meeting when she visited me in Texas in Feb 2014. Just a little history.

It should be relatively easy! Before my fiance even got here I went to HR and spoke to them, they outlined the whole process and gave me the forms to fill out in advance to be brought back with a marriage certificate when we were ready. There was a huge emphasis on getting the SSN ASAP (while it's technically not required it makes things a lot easier). His POE was 10/12, we couldn't apply for the SSN 10/13 because it was Columbus day so we went 10/14, he had the card in his hand by 10/17. We got married 11/5 and got the marriage certificate on the spot, I submitted the paperwork on 11/6 and by 11/11 he was covered. AOS wasn't filed until 11/19. It's a pretty smooth process if you prepare for it!
