RM 02528.003 Process “Operation 30” Input

At times there will be up to five separate Numident records for a particular SSN. However, for these multiple items, it is only necessary to perform the reinstating action, if appropriate, one time. Any subsequent records for that same SSN can be disregarded.

  1. Compare the reported name information shown on Line 2 to the other information shown on the screen display.

  2. Determine, using the rules outlined below, if the item can be reinstated.

    1. Reinstate if a nickname is shown with a new surname. Refer to Appendix A for examples of key names and derivatives. (This rule applies to FEMALES ONLY.)

    2. Reinstate if an obvious male nickname is shown in the reported first name (Line 2) field and the reported and established surnames match. Refer to Appendix B for examples of key names and derivatives.

    3. Reinstate when the reported surname sounds similar to the established surname information (Lines 4 - 6). The reported initial(s) or first name must agree with the established name information.

    4. Reinstate if all reported name information (Line 2) is shown in the surname field and this information matches the established name information.

    5. Reinstate the item if the reported surname (Line 2) matches any of the names shown on Lines 4 through 8. The reported initial(s) or first name must agree with the established name information.

    6. Reinstate those items showing partially garbled information in the reported name field (Line 2) if it can be determined the individuals are the same person.

    7. Reinstate when you have an obvious name reversal.

    8. Reinstate the item where there is an obvious reporting error, e.g., two surnames reported and the second surname was taken as the first name.

  3. If item can be reinstated, follow the instruction in RM 02528.004.

  4. If item cannot be reinstated, continue on to the next record.
