    We just finally filed for Isaac’s SSN- after being sent away b/c of the no health records issue as well. I brought in a copy of his blessing certificate and a print out from the SS website that said that was a legitimate form of ID (the first time the lady said it wasn’t good enough- even though I KNEW the website said it was). I told them it was for a naming ceremony- and I guess they have a box for “naming ceremony” document. It worked at least.

    Good heavens – sounds like a huge big mess :(

    Makes me feel a little better about our archaic systems here.

    Hope you get it sorted out – these things also tend to stress me out!

    What a frustrating day! If your dr. is supportive, could you get a blank immunization record? I am assuming they want to see that yellow one. If you can get one with her name and birthdate on the front, but that is just blank inside, that would still work, right? Not like a drive to the dr. is convenient, but maybe it is an idea?

  4. so frustrating! I assume there are reasons for the red tape but I really can’t fathom them.

    I deal with the social security office on a daily basis and I know what a pain it can be to work with a government bureaucracy. (Especially with rude and grumpy people.) But, you do have to remember why they usually have that attitude. It is because they are constantly dealing with a large majority of people who want everything to be done for them and won’t help themselves. I think they end up giving no one a break because they are frustrated and tired of people who contribute nothing to the system and expect a lot in return and who won’t follow the process necessary to get the free help! I’m sure in other states where home birth is more accepted and more common, there are resources or they have developed a process that works and is more timely than the system we have here. I’ve known three people who have given birth at home in Utah and New York State and they haven’t had any problems adding children to health insurance. Perhaps now that you’ve had to do the research and know the time limitations, necessary forms and documents required, you could do a tutorial for those of us living in Kentucky that don’t know what to do. As we have all learned, information empowers us to change what we know isn’t right and to blaze the obstacles standing in the way of what we need!

    Also, I just looked at the social security website. You can show any of the following records, but they must have identifying biographical information on them:
    Adoption decree;
    Doctor, clinic or hospital record;
    Religious record (e.g., baptismal record);
    Daycare center or school record; or
    School identification card.

    Here is the link…check it out.

      I know, that’s the same link we looked at and the same print-out she gave us. I just hate to waste another afternoon back there! Ugh!

    I second the blank vaccine record. Our public health office here in Washington state just sends them out so I am guessing you should be able to get one from the public health office. Or if it does not matter what state its from you are more than welcome to have one of mine =]

    What about your medical records that took you forever to get from the OB, wouldn’t they have Rosie’s name and birthday on those? Or could you call the pedi and get a copy of the records they had?
    This sounds so frustrating for you to deal with though! How long until open enrollment? It sounds like you will get there before you finish dealing with the government.

    • azuroo says:

      Open enrollment is in July, but we were thinking the same thing. By the time we get it all figured out with the government we’d be into July anyway. The hearing test is hopefully in those medical records that took forever to get.
