The Social Security Administration (SSA) will no longer provide an extended timeframe for employees to resolve mismatched E-Verify cases. As of July 15, 2022, employees whose E-Verify cases are referred to SSA will have the normal eight federal working days to contact their local SSA office to begin resolving the mismatch, the SSA said in an announcement on its website.

E-Verify is a web-based system through which employers electronically confirm the employment eligibility of their employees. In the early days of the pandemic in March 2020, E-Verify had extended the timeframe for an employee to take action to resolve a Social Security (SSA) Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch), due to SSA office closures to the public, according to an announcement at the time.

Now, only E-Verify cases referred between March 2, 2020, to July 14, 2022, with an SSA mismatch will still have an extended timeframe to be resolved until September 29, 2023, according to the announcement.

However, the SSA said that if your E-Verify case resulted in a mismatch and the date on your original Referral Date Confirmation (RDC) is on or after July 15, 2022, you must contact a local SSA field office by the date on your RDC to resolve your mismatch.

It adds that in any case, you must visit SSA to resolve your mismatch by the final deadline of September 29, 2023, or E-Verify will issue a Final Nonconfirmation and your employer may terminate your employment.
