Entering Correct Employee Social Security Number is Critical

Last updated Friday, August 31, 2018

The ISC is seeing a high volume of incorrect or missing Social Security Numbers (SSNs) for new hires, each of which requires significant effort to research and correct. An incorrect or missing SSN can adversely impact an employee’s pay and taxes, benefits, retirement contributions, and more.

If you do not have an employee’s SSN when entering a hire, please stop and obtain the correct SSN before proceeding. If hiring a Foreign National who does not yet have a SSN, please see Guidance: Citizenship Status for Foreign Nationals in the Hire Process.

Please do NOT make up a SSN number.

Please review and verify that the SSN has been entered correctly before submitting in Workday.
