Summary: Social Security Number Match with the Social Security Administration Resumes
Author: ODAS - Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary - SFA


Posted October 6, 1998


TO: Financial Aid Directors

FROM: Diane E. Rogers, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for
Student Financial Assistance Programs

SUBJECT: Social Security Number Match with the Social Security
Administration Resumes


On September 4, 1998 the computer matching program between the Department of Education (ED) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) was temporarily suspended to permit the renewal of the matching agreement between ED and SSA.

I am pleased to announce that the computer matching program between ED and SSA has resumed as of October 6, 1998, one week ahead of schedule. Processed records dated October 7, 1998 and later will contain SSN and citizenship flags.

ED will match all transactions processed but not matched during the suspension. We will provide more information about the reprocessing schedule of those records shortly.

We regret any inconvenience due to the temporary suspension of the SSA matching program. If you have any questions, please contact the Customer Support Branch at 1-800-433-7327.
