Social Security Numbers No Longer Viewable
in PPS Starting Mid-September - 09/3/09

The University’s continued effort to protect restricted information concerning employees and students has led to a change in the data that authorized staff can see when accessing the Purdue Person Search (PPS) system.

Effective Sept. 14, Social Security numbers (SSN) will not be viewable to most PPS users. Only employees responsible for clearing PPS Suspense will have the ability to view SSN in PPS. 

Employees with a business-related need to view this data may request access with a Purdue Person Search SSN Exception form. The form will ask the user to provide justification for the access and signatures of both the user and the department head or director to verify the stated need for access.
