Section 7201 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101– 508) further amended the Privacy Act regarding protections for such individuals. The Privacy Act, as amended, regulates the use of computer matching by Federal agencies when records in a system of records are matched with other Federal, State, or local government records. Among other things, it requires Federal agencies involved in computer matching programs to: (1) Negotiate written agreements with the other agency for agencies participating in the matching programs; (2) Obtain the approval of the match agreement by the Data Integrity Boards (DIB) of the participating Federal agencies; (3) Furnish detailed reports about matching programs to Congress and OMB; PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (4) Notify applicants and beneficiaries that their records are subject to matching; (5) Verify match findings before reducing, suspending, termination or denying an individual’s benefits or payments.

Notice of Computer Matching Program, Office of Personnel Management (OPM) With the Social Security Administration (SSA). A. Participating Agencies OPM and SSA B. Purpose of the Matching Program The purpose of this agreement is to establish the conditions under which SSA agrees to the disclosure of tax return information to OPM. The SSA records will be used in a matching program in which OPM will match SSA’s tax return records with OPM’s records on disability retirees under age 60, disabled adult child survivors, certain retirees in receipt of a supplemental benefit under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), and certain annuitants receiving a discontinued service retirement benefit under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). By law, these annuitants and survivors are limited in the amount they can earn and still retain benefits paid to them. In the case of the discontinued service annuitants, retirement benefits cease upon reemployment in Federal service. OPM will use the SSA data to determine continued eligibility for benefits being paid. C. Authority for Conducting the Matching Program Chapters 83 and 84 of title 5 of the United States Code and 26 United States Code 6103(1)(11). D. Categories of Records and Individuals Covered by the Match SSA will disclose data from its MBR file (60–0090, Master Beneficiary Record, SSA/OEEAS) and MEF file (60– 0059, Earnings Recording and SelfEmployment Income System, SSA/ OEEAS).
