We would like to make you aware of an upcoming change to one of our searches EFFECTIVE JULY 1st 2021.
WHY AM I RECEIVING THIS MESSAGE?
This message is intended for SSC clients requesting the CBSV (Consent Based Social Verification) SSN service. YOUR ACTION IS REQUIRED for upcoming changes. Please continue reading below for important updates.
If your account does NOT order CBSV searches, you may discard this message. If you’re not sure, please contact us.
WHAT’S THE MESSAGE?
It is that time again to update the SSA-89 Form required to process CBSV searches to the newest version issued by the Social Security Administration – FORM VERSION 12-2020. Do not worry, you have plenty of time to switch over!
SSC is unable to accept any older form versions after July 1, 2021. We highly recommend you switch your forms to the updated version as soon as possible, but they will be accepted with standard processing time until July 1. After July 1, orders will be rejected if the new version is not attached. If you have any orders in queue for processing prior to July 1st , we should be able to process those.
To locate the form version number, please refer to the top left corner of page one. If you do not see “Form SSA-89 (12-2020)” then you must update to this newest version.
Check your Form Inventory
Below are some helpful reminders to double check your forms are updated across your form locations.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THE NEW 12-2020 VERSION?
SAME OR DIFFERENT RULES?
The same rules apply for rejections. (Please note these are not rejected by SSC, they are rejections by the Social Security Administration.)
What does the new form look like?
Below is a screenshot of the new version. As you can see all the candidate has to do is enter the top information, sign and date. That’s it!
The new forms are available for download in the candidate portals, our resource site and in our email notifications when forms are required.
