SSN Change Procedures

Changing a Temporary Social Security Number to the Permanent Number

  • Verify the existence of both a temporary social security number and a permanent social security number in the PHR system by searching for the employee by name only. When you search by name the system will return all records that match the name entered
  • Next, verify the employee demographic information to determine 2 identical dates of birth, then determining which record is the accurate record based upon the social security number and date of birth
  • Send email to Payroll Services (payroll@umd.edu) detailing the nature of the problem the temporary number and the permanent number. The PHR Service will initiate an SSN change which can take up to 2 weeks
  • DO NOT CREATE A NEW EMPLOYEE DEMOGRAPHIC RECORD TO CHANGE AN EXISTING INCORRECT SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER
