Creditor can order the debtors 1099, w2, income statements etc with a court order.

How are the debtors ssns going to be protected?

  • SSNs aren’t exactly secure information to begin with - it’s fairly easy to construct one for a person you have enough info about. – Moo Mar 16 '20 at 21:40
  • Is this specific to Nevada? – Luck Mar 17 '20 at 16:29

They are not, necessarily. A particular state may impose protective requirements on businesses, but there is no general-purpose pan-US (federal) law prohibiting people from collecting and storing your social security number. Connecticut has a relatively strong law which requires safeguarding the personal information of another, including the requirement for a privacy policy. This applies to "Any person who collects Social Security numbers in the course of business" – there is a $500 fine for intentionally violating the law. However, government agencies are not subject to the law. Most states don't have such a law, as far as I know.
