Due to COVID-19, the Social Security Administration has implemented a work-from-home policy. As a result, our Office of Finance – Reimbursable Agreements has changed the way we receive and process CBSV payments. Please plan to send us timely payments in order to avoid interruption of the service. Enter your CBSV contract number if you submit your payment using one of the following methods: The CBSV process offers large-scale consent-based SSN verifications to the business community and other government agencies. We developed CBSV as a user-friendly, internet-based application, with security measures that protect public information. In addition to the benefit of being able to offer the business community high-volume centralized SSN verification services in a secure manner, CBSV offers us advantages for cost and workload management. Use this credit card form www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-1414.pdf and enter the CBSV contract number in the “This payment is for” box. Email the completed form to of.ra.controls@ssa.gov and allow 1-2 business days for processing. Please note that the Treasury limits credit card fees to USD 24,999.99. SSA may close the registration at any time and suspend the services. Questions related to CBSV can be emailed to: ssa.cbsv@ssa.gov.

New information: In order to use CBSV, interested parties must pay a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $5,000 USD. Currently, users also pay a fee of $1.40 per SSN verification transaction before services. We have agreed to regularly calculate our costs for the provision of CBSV services and to adjust the rates if necessary. We have also agreed to notify our customers who are currently using the service and allow them to terminate the service or continue to use it to collect the new transaction fees. Due to the new “Work from Home” Directive, this method leads to an interruption of service. If you use a check, you must send us an email with the name of the carrier and the tracking number for of.ra.controls@ssa.gov so that we can track the payment. Make sure to enter the agreement number in the memo box. Allow 10 business days for a standard service or “priority overnight service” via USPS. Allow 7 business days for FedEx or UPS service overnight.

Based on the consent forms, we check the NSS of the number holders for the requesting party. The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)), Section 1106 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1306), and our regulations at 20 CFR 401.100 give us the legal authority to provide SSN audits to third-party organizations on an approval basis. Consent-based Social Security Number (CBSV) verification is one of the best methods of validating personal identifiers. CBSV is a fee- and consent-based validation service managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Typically, this verification is used by companies that provide banking and mortgage services, process credit checks, conduct background checks, meet licensing requirements, and provide other similar services. This service can be used in any market segment for businesses to compare the identifiers of their candidates, customers, customers, tenants and more. It is also used for commercial purposes such as mortgages, auto and personal loans, deposit accounts, authorizations, insurance and fraud investigations.

CBSV is also used as SSN validation before and after tuning. Pay.gov is the fastest way to credit your CBSV account. You can request this method by sending an email to DRAC/IABT at of.ra.controls@ssa.gov. After sending your request, you will receive an email from pay.gov telling them that the eBill is ready to pay.. . . .
