Six States Now Require Social Security Number Protection Policies


More than 30 states have adopted laws limiting how Social Security numbers (“SSNs”) can be collected, used, and disclosed. Six of those states have adopted provisions that specifically require organizations to develop policies to safeguard SSNs. It is important to keep in mind that a business may collect SSNs not only from its customers, but also from its employees or small vendors who use SSNs as their Tax ID number. As a result, almost every business needs to be aware of these state laws and, where applicable, take steps to comply with them.
