• Social Security numbers are also used as identifiers for processing fingerprints with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
• Social Security numbers for employees and dependents are required for enrollment in health insurance, life insurance, and other miscellaneous insurances.
