Validating social security cards
Section 401 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA - Public Law 104-208) required the federal government to establish pilot programs to verify the employment eligibility of new hires.Participation in the E-Verify Program is voluntary and has been available for every business in the country since late 2004.While health insurance providers will provide form 1095-B to the IRS, covered individuals do not have to attach the form to their tax return.They will, however, use the form while preparing the return.Before applying for the Social Security Number/Card, you must make sure that you have completed your “Post Arrival Follow Up Information” by logging in to your online case file.You must log in to the website and complete the task labeled “Post Arrival Follow Up Information,” which will ask for your contact info and for you to scan and upload some of your immigration documents.Falmouth, MA 02540Phone Number: (508) 548-8150 On-line verification can be received quickly most of the time.If on-line verification isn’t possible, it may take several weeks or months.
