Some persons have been issued more than one SSN. If there is reason to believe that a person has more than one SSN, take the following action:
- (FCRC) Obtain copies of:
- the person's birth certificate, and
- any SSN cards or other documents the client has that show an SSN.
- (FCRC) Complete a Form 1925, and attach a copy of the birth certificate, and a copy of any SSN cards or other documents.
- (FCRC) Send the completed Form 1925 and attached copies to the SSA PCU.
- (SSA PCU) Investigates the discrepancy to determine the correct SSN. If unable to resolve, contacts SSA.
- (SSA) Designates one SSN to be used by the client, and notifies SSA PCU of the designated number.
NOTE: Since all SSNs assigned to a person remain valid, SSA provides SSA PCU with any other SSNs assigned to the client.
- (SSA PCU) Enters the SSN designated by SSA and a V tag into the CDB and in Item 60 of Form 552.
- (SSA PCU) Sends the Family Community Resource Center a memo identifying the designated SSN, and any other SSNs provided by SSA.
