Social Security Ends Gender “No-Match” Letters, White House “Welcomes This Move”

Poliglot (“a queer spin on politics”): The National Center for Transgender Equality announced this evening: The Social Security Administration (SSA) has confirmed that it has ended the practice of allowing gender to be matched in its Social Security Number Verification System (SSNVS). This will result in the immediate cessation of SSA sending notifications that alert employers when the gender marker on an employee’s W-2 does not match Social Security records.
