Audit: Some at UNC Hospitals Have Invalid Social Security Numbers

Posted January 29, 2007

— A new audit released Monday said dozens of employees at UNC Hospitals had bad social security numbers.

Auditors found 24 employees with invalid numbers. Of those, three employees were using numbers belonging to dead people.

Four employees had social security numbers that were never issued. Thirteen of the employees had real social security numbers, but their names did not match.

In response, hospital leaders agreed to recommendations to do a better job of checking social security numbers.

    Apparently it's no longer politically correct to ask for ID. The US is slowly going to hell!

    Every time I have ever applied for a job, they also wanted my social security card and other id to verify who I am. Are these people using phoney cards or the employers not doing their job.

    Just another way for people to get away with free money, without paying government taxes!!!! I agree, they should be arrested for fraud, whether they were working or not.
