HUD Mandates EIV Use, SSN Verification
In late January 2009, HUD issued a final rule refining the income and rent determination requirements in its public and assisted housing programs. The final rule has two major new requirements for PHAs and multifamily housing program owners and managers:
It requires the use of the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) system for verifying income sources maintained in the EIV system at all recertifications or reexaminations; and
It requires verification of the Social Security numbers of all applicants, current program participants, and new household members.
