SSA No-Match Letters are Back

An article from the Social Security Administration recently came across our desk indicating that the dreaded Social Security No-Match Letters are coming back in full force, likely starting in the spring of the this year.

Notifications will be going out to businesses who submitted wage and tax statements (Form W-2) that contain name and Social Security number (SSN) combinations that do not match the SSA’s records.

Remember, a SSA No-Match Letter does not necessarily mean that the employee is illegally working in the US. After all, it could just be a paperwork error.  However, regardless, it requires that employers promptly address the situation with the employee.
