The years omnibus Social Security law clarifies what entities have access to the numbers.

Rep. Debra Hilstrom (DFL-Brooklyn Center), who sponsors the law with Sen. Don Betzold (DFL-Fridley), said it will allow consumer credit reporting agencies to continue providing credit reports to the state, and for Social Security information to be included on mortgage documents and insurance applications. The new legislation makes corrections to a similar law passed in 2006, Hilstrom said, and it insures that information will still be protected.

Effective July 1, 2008, the law also states that marketing is not a legitimate business purpose for the sale of Social Security numbers.
