TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation to disclosure of social security numbers
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to amend a chapter of the laws of 2012 relating to the disclosure of social security numbers.
SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would amend the general business law by removing disclosure restrictions placed on numbers derived from a social security number and would permit disclosure of social security numbers collected in furtherance of compliance with a federal, state, or local law or regulation.
JUSTIFICATION: In place of using social security numbers, some entities use alternate identification numbers that are associated with an individual's social security number. This bill would specifically permit the use of this identification number.
Further, this bill would allow the use of a social security number if it is used in order to comply with a federal, state, or local law or regulation.
