Why We Need Social Security Numbers

KUA is a municipal electric utility organized pursuant to Charter Amendment of the City of Kissimmee and state law. According to its Charter, KUA is required to do any and all acts or things that are necessary to operate, preserve and promote an orderly economic and businesslike administration of its electric system for the benefit of its ratepayers. In order to meet these requirements, it is imperative for KUA to ascertain the credit-ratings of its customers to ensure it has adequate security prior to initiating services. This requires KUA to access customers’ credit-ratings through use of social security numbers. This collection is authorized pursuant to Florida Statute Section 119.071.
