The Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS) allows you to match the name and Social Security number of employees you hire with Social Security’s records. Go to http://www.socialsecurity.gov/bso/bsowelcome.htm to use SSNVS.
You have two options for using SSNVS:
- You can directly key up to 10 names/Social Security numbers at atime onto Social Security’s website with immediate results, or
- You can upload a file with up to 250,000 Names/Social Security numbers with next business day results.
It is important to remember that SSNVS cannot be used to prescreen employees before they are hired.
For more information go to http://www.socialsecurity.gov/employer/ssnv.htm.
