We are required to obtain Social
Security numbers in
connection with your application for occupational and professional
licenses to comply with federal law as set out in 42 U.S.C.
§§ 450(c)(2)(C)(i), 654, and 666, and by state law under Ark.
Code Ann. § 17-1-104. Your Social
Security number may then be used for the purposes set forth in those
statutes, including the enforcement of spousal and child support orders
and paternity determinations, and the administration of tax systems,
and may be shared with the agencies which have responsibility for those
matters. Your Social Security number will
not appear on the face of your license, but will be kept on file by the
Arkansas Insurance Department with your license information.
In addition, you may on a
voluntary basis permit the
Arkansas Insurance Department to use your Social Security number for
internal identification purposes and to share your Social Security
number with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC)
for inclusion in the national producer databases (PDB) as a means of
identification. The PDB is intended to
assist in a uniform nationwide system of licensing through that allows
the NAIC to provide licensing information to state insurance regulators
and the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR)to provide licensing
information to insurance companies for compliance purposes. Your
Social Security number will not be
displayed to state insurance regulators or NIPR customers on these
national producer databases. If you do not
wish the Arkansas Insurance Department to share your Social Security
number with the NAIC or NIPR you will not be able to take advantage of
electronic processing of your license and nationwide licensing using
the these national producer databases.
- IF YOU DO NOT AGREE
TO THE USE OF YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AS DESCRIBED IN PARAGRAPH 2,
YOU MUST SO ADVISE THE DEPARTMENT IN WRITING TO THE ADDRESS BELOW.
