Assigned Numbers
(10/01/11 – 12/31/11)
The SSN field may display an assigned number instead of a Social Security Number (SSN).
AZTECS assigns a pseudo SSN in each of the following situations:
A participant does not know their SSN
A participant does not have an SSN
An SSN is not available to FAA
AZTECS pseudo SSN’s are assigned by dropping the first 0 of the client ID number, changing the second 0 to a 9, and using the balance of the client ID number to complete the pseudo SSN.
NOTE A pseudo SSN must be replaced.
Specialized staff can use both the original pseudo SSN, and the original SSN in PMMIS(g) to investigate an AHCCCS participant’s eligibility information.
