Virginia law restricts the use of Social Security numbers (SSNs). Specifically, any person or employer in Virginia is prohibited from:
• Intentionally communicating an individual's SSN to the general public;
• Printing an individual's SSN on any card required to access or receive products or services;
• Requiring the use of a SSN to access an Internet website unless a password or other security device is used; or
• Mailing a package with the individual's SSN visible from the outside (VA Code Sec. 59.1-443.2).
