SOSDirect - An Online Business Service from the Office of the Secretary of State

Attention: The Office of the Secretary of State is completing a project to redact the social security numbers of living persons from the documents filed in this office.  As you know, UCC financing statements are public records and the information on those statements is readily available to all requesting parties including the availability of filed documents on SOSDirect.  Please join us in protecting your client’s privacy by refraining from including client social security numbers in UCC filings.  In addition to the privacy concerns, redaction is costly and may result in delays in processing your documents.  Thank you for your cooperation.
