When completing the application, be sure that all required information is being input accurately and in the correct format.
- Your first and last name should match your Social Security card and Driver's License (ie Robert, not Rob, Bob, Bobby, etc.)
- Social Security number in XXX-XX-XXXX format
- Date of Birth in MM-DD-YYYY format
- Physical address in the standardized format and not a PO Box address (ie 100 Main St. Apt 2B, Everytown, NY 12345)
- Phone number in XXX-XXX-XXXX format
- Email address spelled correctly
Be sure to check for typos and for transposed numbers - sometimes it can be easy to swap a number or two when inputting a phone number or SSN.
