Masked Data

To ensure that we protect personally identifiable information, some data columns are masked on pages for most users. Currently these columns include social security numbers and bank account numbers.

This data is presented for the few users whose job duties require access to it. See Request access to masked data if you believe you should see this data.

On pages within BFS, data is partially masked, with the final digits presented.
