A Social Security Administration (SSA) “Employer Correction Request” notice, or no-match letter, is intended to alert an employer about a mismatch between employee name and/or Social Security number (SSN) information the employer filed and the SSA’s records that may affect the accuracy of an employee’s earnings record for purposes of Social Security benefits. The SSA resumed issuing these letters to employers in March 2019, after several years of not doing so.
SSA no-match letters do not address employee’s work authorization or immigration status; mismatches may exist for many reasons, including typos, clerical errors, or unreported name chances.
