If you are a naturalized U.S. citizen who received a TNC and your employer gives you a Further Action Notice that states, “SSA is unable to confirm U.S. citizenship,” you will need to call DHS at 888-897-7781 (TTY: 877-875-6028) within eight federal government working days from the date your employer refers your case to confirm your status as a U.S. citizen and resolve this TNC. Give DHS the following information:

  • The case verification number from page 1 of the Further Action Notice; AND
  • Your Naturalization Certificate Number or Alien Number (A-Number).

If you do not have either of these numbers, you will need to visit an SSA field office with your proof of U.S. citizenship to correct your record and resolve this TNC.

You received this TNC because your SSA record needs to be updated. Even if you were able to resolve this TNC by calling DHS, merely providing the information requested did not correct your SSA record. USCIS strongly encourages employees to update their records at an SSA field office. When you visit SSA, be sure to bring your naturalization certificate, U.S. passport, or other proof of U.S. citizenship so SSA can correct your records. Any document used to prove U.S. citizenship must be original; SSA cannot accept photocopies or notarized copies of these documents. Locate a field office on the SSA’s locator webpage or call 800-772-1213 (TTY: 800-325-0778).

You can correct information before submitting the case by selecting the Edit Case Details button. If you need more time to verify the information is correct, you may click Save & Exit to exit the case. You can locate the case later under View/Search Cases.

You can also use the Close Case link at the bottom of the review page to close the case without submitting it. Then create a new case with the correct information.

If you submit a case and the information entered does not immediately match SSA and/or DHS records, the Review Case – Are You Sure? screen appears. From this screen you can correct and confirm case information.

If a case resulted in a tentative nonconfirmation (TNC) because incorrect information was entered, select the statement Employee will not take action to resolve this case and you will have the option to close the case due to incorrect data. After closing the case, create a new case with the correct information.
