Update: E-Verify Timeframes for Social Security Discrepancies

The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA)has announced its resumption of E-Verify operations. The SSA’s notice heralds a return to pre-pandemic timeframes for resolving SSA Tentative Nonconfirmations (i.e., social security number mismatches).

As of July 15, 2022, employees whose E-Verify cases are referred to SSA on or after July 15, 2022, will have the normal 8 federal working days to contact their local SSA office to begin resolving the mismatch. In other words, employees with E-Verify cases referred on or after July 15, 2022 for a mismatch will no longer be provided extended timeframes to visit SSA to resolve these mismatches.[i] 

E-Verify provides employers with the following list of preferred dates for employees to contact the SSA based on their Referral Date Confirmation:

Referral Date Confirmation:

Contact the SSA between:

March 2, 2020, to December 31, 2020

October 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022

January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2021

January 1, 2023, to March 31, 2023

January 1, 2022, to July 14, 2022

April 1, 2023, to June 30, 2023

While these timeframes are preferred, according to the SSA, “all employees must visit SSA to resolve their mismatch by the final deadline of September 29, 2023, or their case will automatically get a Final Nonconfirmation.

Additional information to assist employers can be found on the SSA’s E-Verify website.

[i] Employees with an SSA mismatch referred between March 2, 2020 and July 14, 2022, will still have until September 29, 2023 to resolve it.
