Social Security Online Verification (SSOLV) Service

The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) allows jurisdiction motor vehicle agencies (MVAs) to verify SSNs interactively using the Social Security Number Online Verification (SSOLV) transaction. Online support allows a jurisdiction to immediately verify an individual's SSN during the driver's license issuance or renewal process, while an applicant is still at a motor vehicle agency (MVA) service center counter. 

Note: SSA only verifies information transmitted by an MVA (that is, whether or not the MVA information did or did not match the SSA information); it does not disclose other data.

For the on-boarding package, documentation, or more information, please contact us below.
