OLGT 2022-62: Cross Programs: Removing Photos and SSNs from BEACON


To reduce the risk of identity theft, the Department is limiting the number of pages and views that personal identifying information (PII) is displayed on in BEACON. Social Security Numbers (SSNs) and dates of birth (DOBs) will no longer display on the majority of BEACON pages or views. Client photos are also being removed from unnecessary pages as it may lead to certain assumptions based on unconscious bias.

Staff will still be able to search for the client’s information using their SSN.
