(a) Each system manager of a system of records that utilizes Social Security numbers
as a method of identification without statutory authorization, or authorization by
regulation adopted prior to January 1, 1975, shall take steps to revise the system
to avoid future collection and use of the Social Security numbers.
(b) The Office shall take such measures as are necessary to ensure that employees authorized
to collect information from individuals are advised that individuals may not be required
to furnish Social Security numbers without statutory or regulatory authorization and
that individuals who are requested to provide Social Security numbers voluntarily
must be advised that furnishing the number is not required and that no penalty or
denial of benefits will flow from the refusal to provide it.
