Gender Fields Removed and Numbers to be Randomized
Gender Removal from the Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS)
The verification of gender is an optional part of the verification process since the release of SSNVS in June 2005. Effective September 24, 2011, Social Security will no longer use gender as part of the SSNVS verification process. For direct input users, the gender input fields will no longer appear on the SSNVS SSN Verification input screen.
