Blue Medical Certificate Address Details

01/12/2023 | Latest News

If you are a claimant for sickness benefit, you need to be aware of the importance of your blue medical certificate address details. This is the address that you write on the blue medical certificate that you submit to the Department of Social Security when you are unable to work due to illness or injury. This address must match the official address that the department has on record for you, as this is the address that will be used for all official correspondence from the department.

Why is this important? If your blue medical certificate address is different from your official address, you may face some problems. For example, you may not receive important letters or notifications from the department.

Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure that your blue medical certificate address and your official address are the same. If they are not, you need to take action to update your official address as soon as possible. How can you do this? You have two options:

  • You can verify and update your official address online, as per your current address on your Identity Card by clicking here. This is the easiest and fastest way to change your address. You will need to log in with your e-ID and follow the instructions on the mySocialSecurity app.
  • You can visit one of the hubs for further assistance. You will need to bring your Identity Card with you.

Remember, keeping your official address updated is not only a legal obligation, but also a way to ensure that you receive the best service and support from the Department of Social Security. So don’t delay, update your address today!
