Files of disability applicants containing Social Security numbers, addresses, phone numbers of family members, dates of birth, work history, and detailed medical information were lost/stolen when a telecommuting employee abandoned them in a locked filing cabinet at home after a threat of domestic violence. Several of the files were mailed back to the local SSA office. Others were found in a dumpster months later.  Four were never recovered.
