Notice: Protect Your Social Security Number
Most documents maintained by the Secretary of State’s Office are public records subject to disclosure. Filings may be viewed by the public and requested copies may also be made available.
Please do not place your social security number on a UCC filing or other documents you submit to the Secretary of State. Although we attempt to prevent disclosure of social security numbers, due to the large number of documents filed, we cannot guarantee that a social security number placed on a document will not be disclosed. It is the responsibility of the filer to ensure that a social security number is not contained on the filing.
