If requested to do so by the local league, all local league volunteers must provide their Social Security Number when completing their 2011 Little League volunteer application. An individual’s Social Security Number is required for all background checks conducted through LexisNexis.

Currently, each local league using its league ID number to gain access to the Little League Data Center, can check the number of background checks that were conducted (to date) in 2010. See screenshots here. As of Nov. 1, 2010, these tabulations will be re-set to begin counting background checks conducted for the 2011 season.

League Presidents are reminded that completed volunteer applications and background checks are to be kept together on file and secured for the duration of the current season. At the conclusion of the season all volunteer applications and background checks are to be destroyed. Check local laws for length of application retention.

An individual’s Social Security Number also is required for all 2011 insurance claims, according to federal law. The new form is available here, under Insurance, Medical and Claims -> Accident Claim Form. Regardless of whether the claimant is a child or adult, his/her Social Security Number will be required for processing.
