On HOLD for FEP/ING
Unless noted otherwise, this recipe has been placed on the back burner for a time while we focus our development resources on the 2013-2014 file expansion project. We'll turn up the heat again in the future, so stay tuned!
Foreign ID Handling
Updated February 13th 2013
This Recipe's Chef
Got ideas for new or different ingredients? The chefs for this recipe is Dawn Moore.
This project will add a new 2-byte code that works in conjunction with the SSN/TIN field to define exactly what type of ID # is stored in that field. This will allow for the same 9-digit number for both a SSN and a TIN, as well as provide a method for handling non-U.S. tax ID numbers (Canadian or Mexican IDs, etc.), including automatic generation of other/unknown ID numbers (no more imitation SSN/TINs!).
