Default Secure Erase SSD

Anyone know how to secure erase SSD with any programs or techniques? I want to sell my current ssd for a new Intel 520 drive. So I want to make sure my financial information is gone before I sell it.

I've used PartedMagic or GParted -- Linux-based bootable programs -- to secure erase Sandforce- and Marvell-based SSDs.
