The SSA citizenship inquiry is done via the Wire Third Party Query (WTPY). When an SSA match does not verify citizenship, it does NOT mean that the person is not a U.S. citizen. Rather, it means that further documentation is required to verify citizenship and identity. See PM 03-01-00 for information about citizenship verification requirements.
