I'm disabled, so I also have a Medicare number. I've recently changed banks, and have noticed that on my checking account statements, my bank prints my entire social security number (Medicare number) when they list my monthly automatic deposit. I've complained, but they see no problem with their practice.
Everyone needs to check their statements to make sure their bank protects their numbers, and complain implicitly about the practice if their bank also does this. How can customers give their money over to a business that cares so little about their customer's safety? I could not get this bank to even acknowledge that it might be a problem; needless to say, I have dropped them and moved on.
