Nobody cares more about your personal information than you do.  Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do to keep it out of the hands of the government.

According to a report issued by the SSA’s Office of the Inspector General, some 36,657 people were erroneously included in the SSA’s Death Master List, which collects names of recently deceased individuals and is sold to the public.

The data was published between May 2007 and April 2010, according to the report. The SSA had already exposed an additional 26,930 individuals’ records between July 2006 and Jan. 2009.
