(Please allow a minimum of 8 – 10 business days for application processing.)
Under the Federal Privacy Act, disclosure of a person's Social Security number is voluntary unless a Federal statute specifically requires such disclosure or allows states to collect the number. In connection with filing an application to become a Florida Lottery retailer, disclosure of the applicant's Social Security number is required by rule 26 U.S.C.A. s. 6109 for tax reporting purposes. The applicant's Social Security number will also be used in performing the background investigation necessary to implement Section 24.112, Florida statutes, because the Social Security number is used as an identifier in the databases searched.
The Lottery may also provide this information to law enforcement agencies to enforce criminal laws.
Under Section 119.071(5), Florida Statutes, an agency may collect Social Security numbers if it is imperative for the performance of the agency's duties and responsibilities. Notice is hereby provided that for retailer applicants that are legal entities, it is imperative that the Lottery use the Social Security numbers of members, partners, officers, directors, etc., to conduct the background investigations necessary to implement Section 24.112, Florida Statutes, because the Social Security number is used as an identifier in the databases searched.
PLEASE DO NOT MAIL THESE FORMS. Request a visit from a Florida Lottery Sales Representative by contacting the Lottery District Office nearest you. The Lottery Sales Representative will pick-up the application, as well as the other required forms, which can also be downloaded from the bottom of the page.
