Retirement Plan FAQs Regarding Form 8955-SSA - When creating a substitute Form 8955-SSA, what information should we use to submit sample forms?

At minimum, please submit a blank form as well as a fully filled form. Please make sure that the fully filled form has all fields populated, and each field should contain the maximum characters that the field will allow (see the 2-D Barcode Standards document at Form 8955-SSA Resources for field sizes). Do not use real participants; SSNs should be in the range of 000000001 through 000000999.
