This alert generates when no original report is under the W-3c Employer Identification
Number (EIN) and the corrected money amounts posted to the Master Earnings File (MEF).
However, there are prior postings for the same year that match either the W-2c original
money or W-2c corrected money under a different EIN.
Employers may submit their original and corrected report under two different EINs.
Employers sometimes change their EIN between the time of the original report and the
corrected report, or employers sometimes make an error in reporting their EIN.
SSA processing errors may occur during the posting process of paper reports.
Employer contact may be necessary to resolve the problem and to determine the correct
EIN. If an adjustment is necessary, request a new W-2c from the employer (Employer
Error) to reduce the earnings from the incorrect EIN down to zero, or perform an internal
adjustment (SSA Error) to correct the earnings.
