2035 Use of SSN - The agency is authorized to use SSN's in the administration of the medical program. The SSN shall be used in accessing KSES records of wages and benefits. To the extent determined by Health and Human Services, the agency shall have access to information regarding individual clients who receive benefits under Titles II, XVI, and XVIII of the Social Security Act to determine eligibility to receive assistance and the amount of assistance or to verify information related to the benefits of these clients. The specialist should use the BENDEX and SDX to the greatest extent possible. Social Security numbers also should be used to prevent duplicate participation and to determine the accuracy and/or reliability of information given by the client or household.
