Re: Records reprocessed: Pacific Island Applicants rejected by Social Security Match

Applicants from the Pacific Islands who do not have social security numbers are
assigned social security numbers beginning with 888. To prevent these applicants from
receiving a reject S (SSN not on Social Security Administration's database), the CPS was
modified on 8/15/96 to not send these records to match with the Social Security
database. New records (apps, renewal apps, corrections, duplicate requests) processed
on and after 8/15/96 with a social security number starting with 888 will not receive this
reject.

On 8/23/96, CPS reprocessed the most recent transaction of each Pacific Island applicant
with an 888 social security number and who still has a reject S. There are about 850
affected records. Therefore, your destination point may not receive any reprocessed
records.

To identify these reprocessed ISIRs, look at the following fields in your SARA97OP
batch:

Field #2, First three digits of SSN = 888

Field #202, System Generated Indicator (position 896) = Z

Field #205, Batch Number (position 906-922) = #Y000000082396705
