This form will be permanently retained. There is a $5.00 fee to add the “Y” restriction.

Mandatory disclosure of Social Security Numbers. Disclosure of the applicant's social security number is mandatory if eligible. Federal law authorizes such disclosure. See 42 U.S.C.

Social Security numbers will not be released to businesses or private individuals, but may be released to State agencies to carry out their governmental functions.
