E-Verify Resumes Prepandemic Timeframes for Social Security Mismatches

Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C.

Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C.E-Verify is phasing out a policy instituted at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic that had granted employees additional time to contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) to resolve discrepancies with their E-Verify submissions.

Effective July 15, 2022, E-Verify cases referred to the SSA will no longer be afforded the extended timeframe to resolve SSA Tentative Nonconfirmations (TNCs) and the policy will be phased out based on the following schedule:

  • Employees whose E-Verify cases are referred to the SSA on or after July 15 will have eight federal working days (the norm before the pandemic) to contact their local SSA offices to begin resolving the mismatches.
  • Employees whose E-Verify cases were referred to the SSA between March 2, 2020, and July 14, 2022, are still eligible for additional time and will have until September 29, 2023, to resolve the discrepancies.

E-Verify also provided a list of “preferred dates” for employees to contact the SSA based on their referral dates. The preferred timeframes are listed below:

Referral date confirmation range Suggested dates to contact the SSA
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

Employees who fail to resolve their discrepancies with the SSA by September 29, 2023, will automatically receive a final nonconfirmation case result.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
