The link above contains a snippet of Commissioner Michael J. Astrue's testimony regarding the Social Security Master Death File at the "Hearing on Social Security Death Records."
My take on security concerns is here.
Consider signing the petition to require the IRS to take alternative fraud prevention measures now. It is time to show Commissioner Astrue what "over-reaction" is. Removing the SSDI from public access isn't going to stop identity theft.
There is more information about the petition here.
The entire testimony video can be viewed here.
Our politicians need to know:
- genealogists vote.
- we are not just a few "over-reactors"
- we are not just "little ol' ladies in tennis shoes" who can be pushed aside. Those words are mine, not the Commissioners. But often genealogists are viewed in this fashion.
