If you change the sex code on the Numident, and the individual is:
receiving Social Security benefits,
receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments, or
a representative payee for his or her child,
change the sex immediately if it is different on the Master Benefit Record (MBR), the Supplemental
Security Record (SSR), or in the Representative Payee System (RPS) to agree with the
Numident. List all documents or evidence submitted to change the individual’s sex
code on the Social Security Number Application Process (SSNAP) Summary screen.
NOTE: For instructions on determining whether a valid marital relationship exists, see GN 00305.005B.
When changing a parent’s name on a child’s Numident record, ask the parent if he or

the record (e.g., correcting a parent’s name on the SSR record or ensuring that actions
are taken to complete a new representative payee application).
In the “Remarks” block on the SSNAP Summary screen, list any evidence or documents
the individual submitted to change the following fields on the Numident, if not previously
