• Social Security Online Verification (SSOLV)

  • The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA), which currently provides a Social Security Number (SSN) batch verification service to government agencies, has expanded its service to allow online SSN verification. 

    Jurisdiction motor vehicle agencies (MVAs) are now authorized by the SSA to obtain SSN verification information either in batch or online mode. Online support allows a jurisdiction to verify an individual's SSN during the driver's license issuance or renewal process, while an applicant is still at the counter. Note that the SSA only verifies information transmitted by a MVA (that is, whether or not the MVA information did or did not match the SSA information); it does not disclose other data.

    AAMVA has developed a Social Security Number Online Verification (SSOLV) package to assist jurisdictions in implementation. The package includes:

    • SSA/State Memorandum of Agreement: The legal agreement between an interested motor vehicle agency and the SSA
    • SSOLV Application System Specifications: Requirements for implementing the verification service
    • SSOLV Application Structured Test Plans: Structured testing procedures and test cases for testing with AAMVA and SSA

    If you are interested in participating in the SSOLV program, or would like more information, please contact the AAMVA Help Desk.
