[[Page 55754]]

    1. To the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA):
    a. To provide military personnel and pay data for present and 
former military personnel for the purpose of evaluating use of veterans 
benefits, validating benefit eligibility and maintaining the health and 
well being of veterans and their family members.
    b. To provide identifying military personnel data to the DVA and 
its insurance program contractor for the purpose of notifying 
separating eligible Reservists of their right to apply for Veteran's 
Group Life Insurance coverage under the Veterans Benefits Improvement 
Act of 1996 (38 U.S.C. 1968).
    c. To register eligible veterans and their dependents for DVA 
programs.
    d. Providing identification of former military personnel and 
survivor's financial benefit data to DVA for the purpose of identifying 
military retired pay and survivor benefit payments for use in the 
administration of the DVA's Compensation and Pension program (38 U.S.C. 
5106). The information is to be used to process all DVA award actions 
more efficiently, reduce subsequent overpayment collection actions, and 
minimize erroneous payments.
    e. To conduct computer matching programs regulated by the Privacy 
Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), for the purpose of:
    (1) Providing full identification of active duty military 
personnel, including full time National Guard/Reserve support 
personnel, for use in the administration of DVA's Compensation and 
Pension benefit program. The information is used to determine continued 
eligibility for DVA disability compensation to recipients who have 
returned to active duty so that benefits can be adjusted or terminated 
as required and steps taken by DVA to collect any resulting over 
payment (38 U.S.C. 5304(c)).
    (2) Providing military personnel and financial data to the Veterans 
Benefits Administration, DVA for the purpose of determining initial 
eligibility and any changes in eligibility status to insure proper 
payment of benefits for GI Bill education and training benefits by the 
DVA under the Montgomery GI Bill (Title 10 U.S.C., Chapter 1606--
Selected Reserve and Title 38 U.S.C., Chapter 30--Active Duty). The 
administrative responsibilities designated to both agencies by the law 
require that data be exchanged in administering the programs.
    (3) Providing identification of reserve duty, including full time 
support National Guard/Reserve military personnel, to the DVA, for the 
purpose of deducting reserve time served from any DVA disability 
compensation paid or waiver of VA benefit. The law (10 U.S.C. 12316) 
prohibits receipt of reserve pay and DVA compensation for the same time 
period, however, it does permit waiver of DVA compensation to draw 
reserve pay.
    (4) Providing identification of former active duty military 
personnel who received separation payments to the DVA for the purpose 
of deducting such repayment from any DVA disability compensation paid. 
The law requires recoupment of severance payments before DVA disability 
compensation can be paid (10 U.S.C. 1174).
    f. To provide identifying military personnel data to the DVA for 
the purpose of notifying such personnel of information relating to 
educational assistance as required by the Veterans Programs Enhancement 
Act of 1998 (38 U.S.C. 3011 and 3034).

8347).
    b. To conduct computer matching programs regulated by the Privacy 
Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a) for the purpose of:
    (1) Exchanging personnel and financial data to identify individuals 
who are improperly receiving military retired pay and credit for 
military service in their civil service annuities, or annuities based 
on the 'guaranteed minimum' disability formula. The match will identify 
and/or prevent erroneous payments under the Civil Service Retirement 
Act (CSRA) 5 U.S.C. 8331 and the Federal Employees' Retirement System 
Act (FERSA) 5 U.S.C. 8411. DOD's legal authority for monitoring retired 
pay is 10 U.S.C. 1401.
    (2) Exchanging civil service and Reserve military personnel data to 
identify those individuals of the Reserve forces who are employed by 
the Federal government in a civilian position. The purpose of the match 
is to identify those particular individuals occupying critical 
positions as civilians and cannot be released for extended active duty 
in the event of mobilization. Employing Federal agencies are informed 
of the reserve status of those affected personnel so that a choice of 
terminating the position or the reserve assignment can be made by the 
individual concerned. The authority for conducting the computer match 
is contained in E.O. 11190, Providing for the Screening of the Ready 
Reserve of the Armed Services.

Locator Service, DHHS, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 653 and 653a; to assist in 
locating individuals for the purpose of establishing parentage; 
establishing, setting the amount of, modifying, or enforcing child 
support obligations; or enforcing child custody or visitation orders; 
and for conducting computer matching as authorized by E.O. 12953 to 
facilitate the enforcement of child support owed by delinquent obligors 
within the entire civilian Federal government and the Uniformed 
Services work force (active and retired). Identifying delinquent 
obligors will allow State Child Support Enforcement agencies to 
commence wage withholding or other enforcement actions against the 
obligors.

    Note 1: Information requested by DHHS is not disclosed when it 
would contravene U.S. national policy or security interests (42 
U.S.C. 653(e)).

[[Page 55758]]

privileges; to support DoD health care management programs; to provide 
identification of deceased members; to record the issuance of DoD 
badges and identification cards; and to detect fraud and abuse of the 
benefit programs by claimants and providers to include appropriate 
collection actions arising out of any debts incurred as a consequence 
of such programs.
    To authenticate and identify DoD affiliated personnel (e.g., 
contractors); to assess manpower, support personnel and readiness 
functions; to perform statistical analyses; identify current DoD 
civilian and military personnel for purposes of detecting fraud and 
abuse of benefit programs; to register current DoD civilian and 
military personnel and their authorized dependents for purposes of 
obtaining medical examination, treatment or other benefits to which 
they are qualified; to ensure benefit eligibility is retained after 
separation from the military; information will be used by agency 
officials and employees, or authorized contractors, and other DoD 
Components for personnel and manpower studies; and to assist in 
recruiting prior-service personnel.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories 
of users and the purposes of such uses:
    In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 
552a(b) of the Privacy Act, these records or information contained

    1. To the Social Security Administration (SSA) to perform computer 
data matching against the SSA Wage and Earnings Record file for the 
purpose of identifying employers of Department of Defense (DoD) 
beneficiaries eligible for health care. This employer data will in turn 
be used to identify those employed beneficiaries who have employment-
related group health insurance, to coordinate insurance benefits 
provided by DoD with those provided by the other insurance. This 
information will also be used to perform computer data matching against 
the SSA Master Beneficiary Record file for the purpose of identifying 
DoD beneficiaries eligible for health care who are enrolled in the 
Medicare Program, to coordinate insurance benefits provided by DoD with 
those provided by Medicare.
    2. To other Federal agencies and state, local and territorial 
governments to identify fraud and abuse of the Federal agency's 
programs and to identify debtors and collect debts and overpayment in 
the DoD health care programs.
    3. To each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia for the 
purpose of conducting an on going computer matching program with state 
Medicaid agencies to determine the extent to which state Medicaid 
beneficiaries may be eligible for Uniformed Services health care 
benefits, including CHAMPUS, TRICARE, and to recover Medicaid monies 
from the CHAMPUS program.
    4. To provide dental care providers assurance of treatment 
eligibility.
    5. To Federal agencies and/or their contractors, in response to 
their requests, for purposes of authenticating the identity of 
individuals who, incident to the conduct of official DoD business, 
present the Common Access Card or similar identification as proof of 
identity to gain physical or logical access to government and 
contractor facilities, locations, networks, or systems.
    6. To State and local child support enforcement agencies for 
purposes of providing information, consistent with the requirements of 
29 U.S.C. 1169(a), 42 U.S.C. 666(a)(19), and E.O. 12953 and in response

military status of identified individuals and whether, and for what 
period of time, the children of such individuals are or were eligible 
for DoD health care coverage.

    Note: Information requested by the States is not disclosed when 
it would contravene U.S. national policy or security interests (42 
U.S.C. 653(e)).

    7. To the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS):
    a. for purposes of providing information, consistent with the

locating individuals for the purpose of establishing parentage; 
establishing, setting the amount of, modifying, or enforcing child 
support obligations; or enforcing child custody or visitation orders; 
the relationship to a child receiving benefits provided by a third 
party and the name and SSN of those third party providers who have a 
legal responsibility. Identifying delinquent obligors will allow State 
Child Support Enforcement agencies to commence wage withholding or 
other enforcement actions against the obligors.

more efficiently, reduce subsequent overpayment collection actions, and 
minimize erroneous payments.
    e. To conduct computer matching programs regulated by the Privacy 
Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), for the purposes of:

[[Page 55759]]

    (1) Providing full identification of active duty military 
personnel, including full time National Guard/Reserve support 
personnel, for use in the administration of DVA's Compensation and 
Pension benefit program. The information is used to determine continued 
eligibility for DVA disability compensation to recipients who have 
returned to active duty so that benefits can be adjusted or terminated 
as required and steps taken by DVA to collect any resulting over 
payment (38 U.S.C. 5304(c)).
    (2) Providing military personnel and financial data to the Veterans 
Benefits Administration, DVA for the purpose of determining initial 
eligibility and any changes in eligibility status to insure proper 
payment of benefits for GI Bill education and training benefits by the

Selected Reserve and Title 38 U.S.C., Chapter 30--Active Duty), the 
REAP educational benefit (Title 10 U.S.C, Chapter 1607), and the 
National Call to Service enlistment educational benefit (Title 10, 
Chapter 510). The administrative responsibilities designated to both 
agencies by the law require that data be exchanged in administering the 
programs.
    (3) Providing identification of reserve duty, including full time 
support National Guard/Reserve military personnel, to the DVA, for the 
purpose of deducting reserve time served from any DVA disability 
compensation paid or waiver of VA benefit. The law (10 U.S.C. 12316) 
prohibits receipt of reserve pay and DVA compensation for the same time 
period, however, it does permit waiver of DVA compensation to draw 
reserve pay.
    (4) Providing identification of former active duty military 
personnel who received separation payments to the DVA for the purpose 
of deducting such repayment from any DVA disability compensation paid. 
The law requires recoupment of severance payments before DVA disability 
compensation can be paid (10 U.S.C. 1174).
    f. To provide identifying military personnel data to the DVA for 
the purpose of notifying such personnel of information relating to 
educational assistance as required by the Veterans Programs Enhancement 
Act of 1998 (38 U.S.C. 3011 and 3034).

423.
    13. To Federal and Quasi Federal agencies, territorial, state, and 
local governments to support personnel functions requiring data on 
prior military service credit for their employees or for job 
applications. To determine continued eligibility and help eliminate 
fraud and abuse in benefit programs and to collect debts and over 
payments owed to these programs. Information released includes name, 
Social Security Number, and military or civilian address of 
individuals. To detect fraud, waste and abuse pursuant to the authority 
contained in the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended (Pub. L. 95-
452) for the purpose of determining eligibility for, and/or continued 
compliance with, any Federal benefit program requirements.
    14. To Federal and Quasi Federal agencies, territorial, state and 
local governments, and contractors and grantees for the purpose of 
supporting research studies concerned with the health and well being of 
active duty, reserve, and retired personnel or veterans, to include 
family members. DMDC will disclose information from this system of 
records for research purposes when DMDC:
    a. Has determined that the use or disclosure does not violate legal 
or policy limitations under which the record was provided, collected, 
or obtained;
    b. Has determined that the research purpose (1) cannot be 
reasonably accomplished unless the record is provided in individually 
identifiable form, and (2) warrants the risk to the privacy of the 
individual that additional exposure of the record might bring;
    c. Has required the recipient to (1) establish reasonable 
administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to prevent 
unauthorized use or disclosure of the record, and (2) remove or destroy 
the information that identifies the individual at the earliest time at

purpose of the research project, unless the recipient has presented 
adequate justification of a research or health nature for retaining 
such information, and (3) make no further use or disclosure of the 
record except (A) in emergency circumstances affecting the health or 
safety of any individual, (B) for use in another research project, 
under these same conditions, and with written authorization of the 
Department, (C) for disclosure to a properly identified person for the 
purpose of an audit related to the research project, if information 
that would enable research subjects to be identified is removed or 
destroyed at the earliest opportunity consistent with the purpose of 
the audit, or (D) when required by law;
    d. Has secured a written statement attesting to the recipients' 
understanding of, and willingness to abide by these provisions.
    15. To Federal and State agencies for purposes of obtaining 
socioeconomic information on Armed Forces personnel so that analytical 
studies can be conducted with a view to assessing the present needs and 
future requirements of such personnel.
    16. To Federal and state agencies to validate demographic data 
(e.g., Social Security Number, citizenship status, date and place of 
birth, etc.) for individuals in DoD personnel and pay files so that 
accurate information is available in support of DoD requirements.
    17. To the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services, 
Department of Homeland Security, for purposes of facilitating the 
verification of individuals who may be eligible for expedited 
naturalization (Pub. L. 108-136, Section 1701, and E.O. 13269,

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, 
and disposing of records in the system:
Storage:
    Records are maintained on magnetic tapes and disks, and are housed 
in a controlled computer media library.

Retrievability:
    Records about individuals are retrieved by an algorithm which uses 
name, Social Security Number, date of birth, rank, and duty location as 
possible inputs. Retrievals are made on summary basis by geographic 
characteristics and location and demographic characteristics.

[[Page 55760]]

Information about individuals will not be distinguishable in summary 
retrievals. Retrievals for the purposes of generating address lists for 
direct mail distribution may be made using selection criteria based on 
geographic and demographic keys.

Safeguards:
    Computerized records are maintained in a controlled area accessible 
only to authorized personnel. Entry to these areas is restricted to 
those personnel with a valid requirement and authorization to enter. 
Physical entry is restricted by the use of locks, guards, and 
administrative procedures (e.g., fire protection regulations).
    Access to personal information is restricted to those who require 
the records in the performance of their official duties, and to the 
individuals who are the subjects of the record or their authorized 
representatives. Access to personal information is further restricted 
by the use of passwords, which are changed periodically. All 
individuals granted accesses to this system of records are to have 
received Information Assurance and Privacy Act training.

Retention and disposal:
    Data is destroyed when superseded or when no longer needed for 
operational purposes, whichever is later.
