I am applying for Medical Assistance. Do I need to provide copies of my paystubs or tax returns in order for the state to verify my income?

We need your Social Security Number when you apply. We use this information to verify your identity.

You do not have to provide proof of income if we can verify your identify. Proof of income can be documents such as your paystubs or employer letter. When you apply, we accept how much you say your current or prior month’s income is. After you are enrolled, we make sure the income you provided is correct. We check your income with the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.

You may need to give us more information if we are not able to verify your identify. We will send you a letter if we need more information from you to see if you qualify.
