Be Prepared - SSA No Match Letters to Employers On the Way


On April 6, 2011, the Social Security Administration (SSA) Commissioner announced that SSA has resumed sending letters to employers regarding FY 2010 earnings’ records (W-2 Wage

and Tax Statement), which appear to reflect an incorrect social security number or name. Please refer to the announcement at These employer letters

were stopped in 2008 and 2007, as to tax years 2007 and 2006, respectively, due to the litigation over the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations proposed, which were

never implemented, as to safe harbor procedures for employers, who receive no-match letters. SSA announced that it would not send out these letters for tax years 2007 through 2009.
