Tips to Prevent a Tentative Nonconfirmation
E-Verify may issue a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or Social Security Administration (SSA) Tentative nonconfirmation (TNC) result for your case if the name or date of birth entered by your employer does not match government records.
If your E-Verify case receives a DHS or SSA TNC result, you will need to take additional steps to resolve the mismatch. Your employer will enter your name in E-Verify exactly as you write it on your Form I-9. It is important that you write your name clearly on your Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, so that your employer can read it and enter it correctly in E-Verify. It is also very important that the name and date of birth you write in Section 1 matches your documentation.
