SOCIAL SECURITY ACCOUNT NUMBER: Notice to Registrants

 

                Section 7(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) requires that when any federal, state, or local government agency  requests an individual to disclose his or her social security account number (SSAN), that any individual must be advised whether that disclosure is mandatory or voluntary, by what statutory or other authority the number is solicited and what uses will be made of it.  Accordingly, all registrants for the Laredo International Fire and Law Enforcement Training Center courses are advised that disclosure of one’s SSAN is required as a condition of being admitted into the Laredo International Fire and Law Enforcement Training Center courses, in view of the practical administrative Difficulties which would be encountered in maintaining adequate student records without continued use of the SSAN.  The SSAN is used to verify the identity of the student in order to record necessary data accurately. As an identifier, the SSAN is used in such activities as: maintaining accurate records of courses taken and successfully completed and verifying successful completion of courses to supervisors and other agencies.  Authority for requiring the disclosure of a student’s SSAN is grounded on section 7 (a)(2) of the Privacy Act, which provides that an agency may continue to require disclosure of an individual’s SSAN as a condition of the granting of a right, benefit, or privilege provided by law where the agency required this disclosure under statue or regulation prior to January 1, 1975, in order to verify the identify  of an identity of an individual.  I have read and understand this material and I certify that the information provided by me is true and Correct to the best of my knowledge. This document is executed in good faith.
