P. Reading the IEVS Report

 

SSN Verification Process

Part of the IEVS process includes validating the SSN, Birthdate and Name.  The validation information prints back on the IEVS abstract in the SSN-VER code field.  This same information is available by viewing the MEDS on-line IEVS screens.

 

There are five SSN-VER codes:

 

J - Validate SSN match with SSA files.  An IEVS with this code can be used to verify a Social Security Number for all programs.

W - SSN not verified, DOB is different by more than one year.

Y - SSN not validated, Name or SSN does not match SSA files, DOB not checked.

Z - SSN not validated, SSN is not known in SSA files.

* - Transposed SSN validated.

 

One of the features of IEVS validation is that if a match is not found for the SSN, the system attempts to find the correct SSN By transposing numbers in an effort to find a match.  If a match is found, the correct SSN is posted to the VERIFIED SSN: field and the * is posted to the SSN-VER code field.

Zero Interest

Financial institutions may report zero interest on an interest bearing account for the following reasons:

 

·  Interest may be deferred on certain accounts until a later date.

·  Certain stocks pay interest only once a year or when they mature.

·  Institutions may be late in reporting interest amounts to FTB.
