Think globally, act locally – a PogoWasRight.org reader makes a difference

Think globally, act locally – a PogoWasRight.org reader makes a difference

In February, I received an email from a reader of this site, Helen D. Helen was concerned that her monthly banking statements from Cambridge Trust showed her full Social Security number next to the deposit information on her Social Security check. “Wish me luck,” she wrote as she set out to try to get her bank to change their system.

Earlier this month, Helen wrote again that the bank was working on their changing their system. Today, her monthly statement arrived — without her SSN showing.

Kudos to Helen for taking action to address the unnecessary exposure of SSN, and kudos to Cambridge Trust for responding to Helen’s concerns.

If your bank is showing your SSN on your monthly banking statements, follow Helen’s lead and advocate to get that changed.
