Notice is hereby given that SSA will incorporate a change to its Magnetic Media Reporting and Electronic Filing (MMREF) publication under which SSA will no longer accept annual Form W-2 wage reports filed using value added networks (VANs) or dial-up networking, beginning with calendar year 2002.

The MMREF publication and additional information on wage report filing can be obtained by accessing SSA's employer reporting web site at www.ssa.gov/employer or by calling 800-772-6270.
