The Social Security Administration has resumed normal operations following the COVID pandemic, but is still experiencing a backlog and delays in processing referred E-Verify Tentative Non-Confirmations.
If you have pending TNCs that have been referred for a final disposition (your employee chose to “take action”), you should notify your employee that they must take action to resolve the TNC according to the following timetable:
|If the date on the employee’s Referral Date Confirmation is:
|Then the employee should visit SSA between:
|March 2 to December 31, 2020
|October 1 to December 31, 2022
|January 1 to December 31, 2021
|January 1 to March 31, 2023
|January 1 to July 14, 2022
|April 1 to June 30, 2023
If the employee does not take action to resolve the TNC according to the timetable, their case will update to a “Final Non-Confirmation” and they will be deemed ineligible to work. We will notify you if this occurs.
This also means that you may not receive a final disposition on a pending TNC until the above time periods have passed.
IMPORTANT: A TNC does not necessarily mean that the employee is not authorized to work in the United States. You may not take any adverse action (suspension; reduction of hours, training or duties, etc.) against an employee because of the TNC while the E-Verify case is pending. You may take action against an employee for any issue not related to E-Verify. If, after contesting the TNC the employee is terminated for job abandonment or another reason unrelated to the TNC, or leaves voluntarily, please notify us so that we can update the case.
Note: Timeframes are recommended. All employees must visit SSA to resolve their Tentative Non-Confirmation (mismatch) by the final deadline of September 29, 2023, or their case will automatically get a Final Non-Confirmation (FNC).
