Social Security Notification Requirements

The Social Security Protection Act of 2004 requires employers to provide a written notice to new employees not covered by Social Security who begin work on or after January 1, 2005. Please use the Social Security number as the employee's identification number. The TRS Code (TRS employer number) should be used for the employer's identification number. Social Security's website contains a page, www.socialsecurity.gov/form1945, with information on the required notice, including how the form can be downloaded or ordered from the site.

If you have questions, email us at employers@trs.illinois.gov or call (888) 877-0890.
