A claimant, who has never filed for benefits, contacts SSA and wants to correct his/her
earnings record because he/she received a Social Security Statement, a No-Match letter
(RM 01105.027) or some similar notification and the claimant clearly has not filed, and does not
plan to file a claim for benefits. The earnings record can be corrected.
EXCEPTION: If the NH filed a claim for Title II benefits and was disallowed due to lack of
QCs/earnings, do not take action to correct the earnings record. (RS 01404.252B. explains when action cannot be taken to correct the record).
