E-Verify announced that as of July 15, 2022, employees whose E‑Verify cases are referred to the Social Security Administration (SSA) have the normal eight federal working days to contact their local SSA office to begin resolving the mismatch.

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, E‑Verify extended the timeframe for an employee to take action to resolve a Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch). For E‑Verify cases referred on or after July 15, 2022, E‑Verify is no longer providing extended timeframes for employees to visit SSA to resolve these mismatches. However, E‑Verify cases referred between March 2, 2020, to July 14, 2022, with an SSA mismatch still had an extended timeframe to be resolved, E-Verify said.
