RM 01340.053 Processing Forms SSA-7004-SM-OP1 Noted With a Checkmark Next to the SSN Returned in Response to our Request for Correct SSN
When a request was previously received and the social security number was missing, incomplete or invalid, a red checkmark was placed next to the SSN box on Form SSA-7004-SM-OP1. Because direct contact was not successful, the request was mailed to the number holder for a correct SSN.
B. When to use
Use this procedure when the number holder returns the Form SSA-7004-SM-OP1 for processing.
Examine the request and if the number provided appears to be correct as indicated in RM 01340.030, sort for data entry.
If the SSN provided is still obviously incomplete, illegible or incorrect, forward the Form SSA-7004-SM-OP1 and/or correspondence to the servicing field office under cover of Form SSA-984. Check box B.2.
