Is there an ID Theft law in Texas which requires that institutions not send out the full SSN on documents or require the SSN (or portion thereof) as a PIN?

Thanks --

I believe these provisions were part of Senate Bill 473 amending Subchapter D, Chapter 35, Business & Commerce
Code --- Section 35.58. I believe they were effective 1/1/05(??), I'm not sure if this would be something preempted by FACTA?

About a year or so ago Blue Cross had to change its contract# of Texas residents so that it would no longer be the insured's Social Security Number.
