Research and PII

If your research involves humans, it very likely has to deal with PII in one way or another.

If you need to pay your subjects, you may need to collect their Social Security Number (SSN). Penn's Social Security Number Policy has very clear guidelines on how you must protect SSN's. Working closely with your Regional Business Office you should develop a procedure that eliminates the need for you or your lab to keep or transmit these SSN's.
