SSA Issuance of “No Match” Letters

May 23, 2011

On April 6, 2011, the Social Security Administration (SSA) reintroduced the issuance of social security no-match letters to notify an employer (and the affected individual) that the social security number information reported by the employer does not match the information in the agency’s database. The letters give employers and their workers notice of a discrepancy, so that employee earnings can be credited to the right individual and social security benefits can be calculated correctly.
