Comments:Social Security Numbers allow us to track individuals needed in criminal cases to testify and to substantiate whether the individual could be involved in any other activities. I've determined that individuals that claim to be victims are themselves people who commit crimes and have used multiple social security numbers to commit crimes, collect monies and services, etc. Social Security Numbers also point the way to a place of origin and a further location to look for information. SSNs are also required in this State in order to issue 1099 forms for payment of subpoena fees and/or expert witness fees, etc. When it comes to indigent defense there are far too few resources available and taking this resource away will drive up manhours and increase costs.
