Sample Social Security Number Elimination Plan

Published, January 17, 2012

For new and existing Department of the Navy forms and information technology systems, any use of the Social Security number (SSN) that cannot be justified through appropriate authorities must be eliminated.

Where elimination is not immediate, the Department of Defense requires creation of an SSN Elimination Plan. A sample plan can be downloaded below. SSN elimination plans should be submitted to the DON CIO Privacy Office.
