AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice--Computer Matching between the U.S. Department of 
Education and the Social Security Administration.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act 
of 1988, Pub. L. 100-503, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
guidelines on the conduct of computer matching programs, notice is 
hereby given of the renewal of the computer matching program between 
the U.S. Department of Education (ED) (recipient agency), and the 
Social Security Administration (SSA) (the source agency). This renewal 
of the computer matching program between SSA and ED will become 
effective as explained below.
    In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as 
amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 
(Pub. L. 100-503), the OMB guidelines on the conduct of computer 
matching programs (see 54 FR 25818, June 19, 1989), and OMB Circular A-
130, we provide the following information:

1. Names of Participating Agencies

    The U.S. Department of Education and the Social Security 
Administration.

2. Purpose of the Match

    The purpose of this matching program between ED and SSA is to 
assist the Secretary of Education in her obligation to verify 
immigration status and social security numbers (SSN) under 20 U.S.C. 
1091(g) and (p). The SSA will verify the issuance of an SSN to, and the 
citizenship status of, those students and parents who provide their 
SSNs in the course of applying for aid under a student financial 
assistance program authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education 
Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). Verification of this information by SSA 
will help ED satisfy its obligation to ensure that individuals applying 
for financial assistance meet eligibility requirements imposed by the 
HEA.
    Verification by this computer matching program effectuates the 
purpose of the HEA because it provides an efficient and comprehensive 
method of verifying the accuracy of each individual's SSN and claim to 
a citizenship status that permits that individual to qualify for Title 
IV, HEA assistance.

3. Authority for Conducting the Matching Program

    ED is authorized to participate in the matching program under

483(a)(7) (20 U.S.C. 1090(a)(7)); and 428B(f)(2) (20 U.S.C. 1078-
2(f)(2)) of the HEA.
    The SSA is authorized to participate in the matching program under 
section 1106(a) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1306(a)) and the 
regulations promulgated pursuant to that section (20 CFR part 401).

4. Categories of Records and Individuals Covered by the Match

has applied for and obtained an SSN.

5. Privacy Impact Assessment

    Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002 (44 U.S.C. 3501 note) 
requires ED to conduct the following privacy impact assessment of this 
information collection:
    The information collected by ED under this computer matching 
agreement is the verification of SSNs and citizenship by SSA, for the 
purpose of assisting ED to satisfy its obligation to ensure that an 
individual applying for financial assistance meets the requirements 
imposed under the HEA. This verification is mandated by the HEA. The 
information obtained from SSA by ED will only be used as provided for 
under Section X of the agreement. Notice that ED verifies an 
individual's SSN through a computer matching agreement with agencies 
such as SSA is provided to individuals in the Privacy and Security 
section of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and in 
Federal student loan program forms; submission of a FAFSA and 
participation in the Federal student loan programs are voluntary. The 
information obtained from SSA under this computer matching agreement 
will be secured pursuant to the procedures described in Section IX of 
the agreement. No new system of records is being created for this 
collection because, as noted above, routine uses permitting the 
disclosure of records to allow for the verification of SSNs are already 
included in the Systems of Records Notices for Federal student aid 
programs. Thus, this collection comports with applicable Privacy Act 
standards and Section 208.

of each agency. This matching agreement will become effective on: (1)
