A new problem has been found in the iCERT system that can cause a denial
of the LCA. This time it is in regard to company’s FEIN that begins
with zero (“0”). If the company’s FEIN starts with (“0”)
the systems will automatically switch some digits in the FEIN thereby
making the FEIN incorrect. The incorrect FEIN populates in the new LCA.
In the event, the user does not notice the incorrect FEIN and the LCA
is submitted with the incorrect FEIN the LCA will be denied due to the
DOL is aware if this problem and working to find a solution. In the meantime
LCAs should be reviewed carefully before submission to make sure that
the FEIN number is correct.
