Social Security Number Requirement, Authority and Disclosure Statement

As part of your application for an initial, renewed, or reinstated professional license issued by the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists (OBMT), you are required to provide your Social Security Number to the Board.  This is mandatory.  Failure to provide your Social Security Number will be a basis for OBMT to refuse to issue, renew, or reinstate the license.  Although a number other than your SSN appears on the face of the license, your Social Security Number will remain on file with the Board.  If warranted, your SSN may be used for background checks, child support enforcement, Federal and State tax administration, final disciplinary actions against your massage license and used to collect on any delinquent account. Any other use of your SSN will require your written authorization.
