Numident Online Verification Utility (NOVU)

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2023

NOVU is a mainframe application that accesses the NUMIDENT to perform real-time SSN verifications. This program is called by other SSA online programs that serve as interfaces to end-users. Some of the systems that use NOVU for verification purposes include Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS), Social Security Online Verification (SSOLV) and State Online Query (SOLQ). The input record is passed to NOVU with the goal of verifying that the SSN is valid and the corresponding name, DOB and/or gender match with certain tolerances. The NOVU verification response codes are returned to the requester.
