Fictitious Social Security Numbers

If your new employee is a non-resident alien, has a visa to perform work and meets ASRS eligibility but does not yet have a valid U.S. Social Security number, please use 000-00-0000. This will alert the ASRS to monitor the employee’s account contributions until they have obtained their Social Security number. 

DO NOT remit the employee’s contributions using a fictitious Social Security number. A false Social Security account number will generate an ASRS account and, if that same number is being used by a different member, it becomes much more complicated to make corrections and separate the contributions.
