Statements Regarding Collection of Social Security Numbers on Forms
SSN required on University employment forms:
Federal tax regulations require the University of Connecticut Department of Human Resources to collect a social security number (SSN) from every employee who is paid compensation. Employee SSN’s are maintained and used by the University for payroll and benefits purposes, to verify employment history, and where required by law or for benefits purposes, to report the employee’s SSN on Federal and state agency forms. Except as mandated by law or as required for benefit purposes, the University will not disclose an employee’s SSN to any person or organization outside the University without the employee’s prior consent. Failure to provide a SSN to the University of Connecticut on required Human Resources forms may result in the withdrawal of an offer of employment and/or the denial of benefits.
SSN required by third party form (such as benefit form):
At times the University of Connecticut may provide University employees with forms on behalf of benefit providers and other organizations. Many of these forms require you to provide your social security number (SSN). As private companies it is within their rights to require you to provide your SSN in order to provide the requested service. These services typically include but are not limited to health and life insurance, retirement benefits, and employment verification. In addition, many State and Federal forms will also request your SSN. These forms may include, but are not limited to: tax and other compensation-related forms, background check forms for security sensitive positions, immigration forms, and forms for other government services. If you feel one of these third parties has misused your SSN, your first recourse is to contact the third party directly.
