Accounting, Payroll & Pension Issues/W-2s sent to SSA twice

Advertisement


Question
Hello Ms. McAllister,

My question pertains to W-2s being sent to the Social Security Administration.

Due to a miscommunication, we sent copies of our employees' W-2s to the SSA after our payroll service (which we no longer use) had already done so. What would need to be done to rectify this situation so that the government does not think our employees all made twice as much money as they actually did?

Answer
If you need to talk directly to SSA staff about a wage report processing problem, you may contact SSA’s employer services at 1-800-772-6270

You may also speak with an Employer Service Liaison Officer (ESLO) (wage reporting specialists in the SSA regional office in your area.)  Call your local SSA office and explain what has happened.
