GAO Testimony: Social Security Number Use Is Widespread and Protections Vary
U.S. Government Accountability Office [GAO]Link to more items from this source

26 pages. "Our preliminary survey data show that the types of records most likely to contain SSNs and be made available to the general public by state government entities are court records, death records, Uniform Commercial Code filings, and professional licensing records. In addition, our preliminary data suggest that responding state offices reported over 35 instances where they had no specific use for collecting SSNs. In a previous report, we proposed that Congress consider developing a unified approach to safeguarding SSNs used in all levels of government and particularly those displayed in public records, and we continue to believe that this approach has merit."
