Request for Comments "Identity Theft Conference, Project No. P175400"
Employers should be mandated to redact personal identifying information when sending out various notices to employees regarding proof of health insurance, life insurance, etc., in order to comply with the Affordable Health Care Act and the IRS. My employer sends this information to me through the United States Postal Service with my name, date of birth and full social security number on the forms, and these forms also list the same personal identifying information for my dependents. When I brought this up to my employer, I was told "we are required to send the forms to you due to the Affordable Care Act and the IRS." My employer does not seem to understand that although they are mandated to send the forms, they should be redacting the personal identifying information listed in the forms.
