Just received a packet in the mail that we(employees) have to fill out forms and supply information on our dependents in order to keep them on the insurance coverage provided by our company. Failure to do so will cancel their coverage! This includes a copy of my tax return with the names listed and and partial social security numbers. If I don't want to send that , They want a proof of joint ownership. That includes mortgage statement, utility bill, credit card, tax document, etc... Kids: need to send birth certificates.
This is going to a third party who is conducting the eligibility review.
Not that I have anything to hide or am cheating the company, but this feels like a real invasion of privacy sending a tax return (with portions whited out) of course. Just wondering if anyone else has had to do this? What is next? A micro chip implanted in my head?
