Process for Substituting the DoD ID Number for the SSN in IT Systems
By DON CIO Privacy Team - Published, June 15, 2012
In Phase II of the Department of the Navy Social Security Number (SSN) Reduction Plan, program managers/system owners identified information technology systems that could eliminate the collection of SSNs by substituting the Department of Defense identification (ID) number (i.e., the Electronic Data Interchange Personal Identifier). Phase III authorizes the use and substitution of the DoD ID number and provides strict guidelines for its use.
These two Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) documents provide the process for crosswalking a name and SSN to the DoD ID number. To obtain further information, start the process and be assigned a DMDC project officer, please contact Mr. Darroll Love, DMDC, at (831) 583-2400 ext. 5519.
