The Social Security Administration (SSA) resumed mailing Educational Correspondence/Employer Correction Request (EDCOR) letters to employers beginning on March 29, 2019. These revised letters inform employers that the SSA could not match a name or SSN with SSA records for one or more of their employee’s Forms W-2. The letter includes instructions for viewing and correcting online these no-matches, to help improve the accuracy of future wage reports, and further educates employers about the SSA free suite of online services available from Business Services Online (BSO).
More information about the employer EDCOR letters, including a sample version, is located at https://www.ssa.gov/employer/notices.html (SSA/IRS Reporter, Spring 2019).
