    Hello,

     

    I was wondering how anyone has handled an employees first name that is more than 15 characters on HR11.  I know the preferred name is longer, but that feeds into other systems so we want the actual preferred name to be captured in that field.   Wondering how this will impact W2's and 1095's?  Will the record be rejected because the name/SSN aren't valid?

    I would say it will definitely impact 1095c and 1094c forms. We had a lot of clean up to do with names/middle names etc when we submitted our first 1094c form. Had very long tenured employees whose name was not an exact match to SSN which caused errors.

    I agree with Beate. Our first submission brought to our attention plenty of long-term employees whose name in our system didn't match their SSN. We had a lot of clean-up that first year. Although we've only had push back on last names. We have not had any issues with first names being inconsistent.
