Social Security Number Usage Notification

Florida Statute 119.071(5) requires that all employees be notified of the intention for the collection and usage of social security numbers. Palm Beach State College collects and uses your social security number for employment related purposes. To protect your identity, Palm Beach State secures your social security number from unauthorized parties and the Office of Human Resources has assigned you a unique personnel identification number (PID), in lieu of your social security number, for use in our personnel data system. Your PID number is located behind your ID Badge or login to the Employee Web. Whenever possible, the college will use your PID and will not require social security information. There are, however, occasions where your social security number will be used for business purposes in compliance with the following:

  • form 1095C
  • form I-9, if applicable
  • forms W-4, W-2, 1099
  • dental insurance
  • email account request
  • health insurance
  • life insurance
  • long-term disability
  • retirement contribution
  • social security taxes
  • supplemental insurance options
  • unemployment
  • workers’ compensation

Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Human Resources with any questions or concerns.
