Verifying your employees are authorized to work in the United States is one step of the new hire paperwork process. You must gather your employees’ names and Social Security numbers (SSNs) so you can fill out essential documents like payroll reports. But if an employee’s SSN and name don’t match the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) records, you may receive a Social Security no-match letter.
The SSA began mailing no-match letters in March of 2019. However, SSN no-match letters aren’t exactly brand new. The SSA used the letters before the government put an end to them in 2012. And now, they’re back.
