protecting privacy

I thought we had this problem licked but just today we noticed a mortgage with a social security number on the first page. This is a government program and now we are wondering if this is a new development or just the first time it popped out to our eyes.

Why in heavens name would a mortgage lender or a government agency put a person's social security number on a document intended for public recording?

We have a call in to the lender to find out if we can remove the number prior to recordation.
