If a filing office is presented with a record that contains an individual's social security number, the filing office may, prior to filing and indexing the record, remove or obscure characters from the social security number such that the social security number is not discernable on the record.

409.520(1m)(b)

(b) If a filing office is presented with a record for filing and indexing that contains an individual's social security number, and if the filing office does not discover that the record contains the individual's social security number until after the record is filed and indexed, the filing office is not liable for the record drafter's placement of the individual's social security number on the record and the filing office may remove or obscure characters from the social security number such that the social security number is not discernable on the record.

409.520(1m)(c)

(c) If a filing office files and indexes a record that contains the complete social security number of an individual, the record drafter is liable to the individual whose social security number appears in the filed and indexed record for any actual damages resulting from the record being filed and indexed.

409.520(2)

(2) Communication concerning refusal. If a filing office refuses to accept a record for filing, the filing office shall communicate to the person that presented the record the fact of and reason for the refusal and the date and time the record would have been filed had the filing office accepted the record. The communication must be made at the time and in the manner prescribed by filing-office rule but, in no event more than:

409.520(4)

(4) Separate application to multiple debtors. If a record communicated to a filing office provides information that relates to more than one debtor, this subchapter applies as to each debtor separately.
