IRVINE, CA (July 8, 2009) — Today, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the Department will be proposing a new regulation rescinding the Social Security Administration No-Match Rule – a regulation issued by the Bush Administration in August, 2007 and enjoined by a U.S. District Court since it was introduced. The Rule was intended to address an employer's obligations in response to receipt of a social security number mismatch notice from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
