SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to subsection (o) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, (5 U.S.C. 552a), the DMDC and VA have concluded an agreement to conduct a computer matching program between the agencies. The purpose of this agreement is to verify an individual’s continuing eligibility for VA benefits by identifying VA disability benefit recipients who return to active duty and to ensure that benefits are terminated if appropriate. The parties to this agreement have determined that a computer matching program is the most efficient, expeditious, and effective means of obtaining the information needed by the VA to identify ineligible VA disability compensation recipients who have returned to active duty. This matching agreement will identify those veterans who have returned to active duty, but are still receiving disability compensation. If this identification is not accomplished by computer matching, but is done manually, the cost would be prohibitive and it is possible that not all individuals would be identified. A copy of the computer matching agreement between VA and DMDC is available upon request to the public. Requests should be submitted to the address caption above or to the Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Benefit Administration, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20420. Set forth below is the notice of the establishment of a computer matching program required by paragraph 6.c. of the Office of Management and Budget Guidelines on computer matching published in the Federal Register at 54 FR 25818 on June 19, 1989.

Notice of a Computer Matching Program Between the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense for Verification of Disability Compensation A. Participating Agencies Participants in this computer matching program are the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) of the Department of Defense (DoD). The VA is the source agency, i.e., the activity disclosing the records for the purpose of the match. The DMDC is the specific recipient activity or matching agency, i.e., the agency that actually performs the computer matching. B. Purpose of the Match The purpose of this agreement is to verify an individual’s continuing eligibility for VA benefits by identifying VA disability benefit recipients who return to active duty and to ensure that benefits are terminated if appropriate. VA will provide identifying information on disability compensation recipients to DMDC to match against a file of active duty (including full-time National Guard and Reserve) personnel. The purpose is to identify those recipients who have returned to active duty and are ineligible to receive VA compensation so that benefits can be adjusted or terminated, if in order. C. Authority for Conducting the Match The legal authority for conducting the matching program for use in the administration of VA’s Compensation and Pension Benefits Program is contained in 38 U.S.C. 5304(c), Prohibition Against Duplication of Benefits, which precludes pension, compensation, or retirement pay on account of any person’s own service, for any period for which he receives active duty pay. The head of any Federal department or agency shall provide, pursuant to 38 U.S.C. 5106, such information as requested by VA for the purpose of determining eligibility for, or amount of benefits, or verifying other information with respect thereto.

The DMDC database consists of personnel records of active duty (including fulltime National Guard and Reserve) military members. Matching records, ‘‘hits’’ based on the SSN, will produce the member’s name, branch of service, and unit designation, and other pertinent data elements. The hits will be furnished to the Veterans Benefits Administration which is responsible for verifying and determining that the data on the DMDC electronic reply file are consistent with the source file and for resolving any discrepancies or inconsistencies on an individual basis. The Veterans Benefits Administration will also be responsible for making final determinations as to positive identification, eligibility for benefits, and verifying any other information with respect thereto. The electronic file provided by VA will contain information on approximately 2.5 million disability compensation recipients. The DMDC computer database file contains approximately 1.5 million records of active duty military members, including full-time National Guard and Reserve.

is the specific recipient activity or matching agency, i.e., the agency 
that actually performs the computer matching.

B. Purpose of the Match

    The purpose of this agreement is to verify an individual's 
continuing eligibility for VA benefits by identifying VA disability 
benefit recipients who return to active duty and to ensure that 
benefits are terminated if appropriate. VA will provide identifying 
information on disability compensation recipients to DMDC to match 
against a file of active duty (including full-time National Guard and 
Reserve) personnel. The purpose is to identify those recipients who 
have returned to active duty and are ineligible to receive VA 
compensation so that benefits can be adjusted or terminated, if in 
order.

C. Authority for Conducting the Match

    The legal authority for conducting the matching program for use in 
the administration of VA's Compensation and Pension Benefits Program is 
contained in 38 U.S.C. 5304(c), Prohibition Against Duplication of 
Benefits, which precludes pension, compensation, or retirement pay on 
account of any person's own service, for any period for which he

2004. Attachment 5 is a copy of the system notice with the appropriate 
routine use, i.e., RU 1(d)(1), annotated.

E. Description of Computer Matching Program

    The Veterans Benefits Administration will provide DMDC with an 
electronic file which contains specified data elements of individual VA 
disability compensation recipients. Upon receipt of the electronic 
file, DMDC will perform a computer match using all nine digits of the 
SSNs in the VA file against a DMDC computer database. The DMDC database 
consists of personnel records of active duty (including full-time 
National Guard and Reserve) military members. Matching records, 
``hits'' based on the SSN, will produce the member's name, branch of 
service, and unit designation, and other pertinent data elements. The 
hits will be furnished to the Veterans Benefits Administration which is 
responsible for verifying and determining that the data on the DMDC 
electronic reply file are consistent with the source file and for 
resolving any discrepancies or inconsistencies on an individual basis. 
The Veterans Benefits Administration will also be responsible for 
making final determinations as to positive identification, eligibility 
for benefits, and verifying any other information with respect thereto.
    The electronic file provided by VA will contain information on 
approximately 2.5 million disability compensation recipients.
