The census and insurance enrollment are two important parts of your life -- and this month is the deadline for both of them. Don't miss out on making your voice count and getting the health care coverage you need.

Insurance enrollment deadline: December 31

The insurance enrollment deadline has again been extended to December 31st. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, and many New Yorkers have lost their health insurance due to unemployment, or aren't insured. This special extended enrollment period is meant to assist those affected by COVID-19 to get coverage. 

You can learn more about how to enroll for insurance here. 

2020 Census deadline: September 30

The Census Bureau recently announced the 2020 Census count will end a month early. The 2020 Census ends September 30. The census is key to improving quality of life for everyone. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community.

The census does NOT ask about immigration or citizenship status, income, or your social security number. All responses are confidential, protected by law, and cannot be used against you in any way.

You can complete the census here, and if you'd like to learn more about the census click here.
