Social Security Number Verification & Use

Tax law requires that new employees' Social Security numbers be verified and accurately entered into Human Capital Management (HCM). Please see the Employee Services Procedure on Social Security numbers for more information.

The correct Social Security number and name, as recorded on the Social Security card, is entered in HCM with the new employee’s appointment information. This ensures accurate tax reporting to both the Internal Revenue Service and the Social Security Administration.

Newly arrived, non-resident international employees (non-resident aliens, for tax purposes) receive a temporary exemption for up to eight weeks to provide time for them to obtain a Social Security card. (See "Social Security Administration Delays in Social Security Number Issuance to International Employees" for more information.)
