SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to subsection (o) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, (5 U.S.C. 552a), the DMDC and SSA have concluded an agreement to conduct a computer matching program between the agencies. The purpose of this agreement is to verify eligibility of individual’s of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments and the entitlement of individuals to Special Veterans Benefits (SVB).

Conducting such a manual match would impose a considerable administrative burden, constitute a greater intrusion of the individual’s privacy and would result in additional delay in the eventual SSI payment and SVB benefit recovery of unauthorized or erroneous payment.

Dated: March 11, 2009. Morgan E. Frazier, Alternate OSD Federal Register Liaison Officer, Department of Defense. Computer Matching Program Between the Social Security Administration and the Department of Defense for Verification of Social Security Supplemental Security Income Payments and Special Veterans Benefits A.

The SSI and SVB recipient/beneficiaries provides information about eligibility/ entitlement factors and other relevant information. SSA obtains additional information as necessary before making any determinations of eligibility/ payment or entitlement/benefit amounts or adjustments thereto. With respect to military retirement payments to SSI recipients and SVB beneficiaries who are retired members of the Uniformed Services or their survivors, SSA proposes to accomplish this task by computer matching with the DOD. C. Authority for Conducting the Match: The legal authority for the matching program is contained in sections 1631(e)(1)(B), (f), and 806(b) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1383(e)(1)(B), (f) and 1006(b)).

Description of Computer Matching Program: SSA, as the source agency, will provide DMDC with an electronic file which contains the data elements.

The DMDC database consists of extracts of personnel and pay records of retired members of the uniformed services or their survivors. The ‘‘hits’’ or matches will be furnished to SSA. SSA is responsible for verifying and determining that the data on the DMDC electronic reply file are consistent with the SSA source file and resolving any discrepancies or inconsistencies on an individual basis.

Supplemental Security Income Payments and Special Veterans Benefits

    A. Participating Agencies: Participants in this computer matching 
program are the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Defense 
Manpower Data Center (DMDC) of the Department of Defense (DoD). The SSA

eligibility/entitlement factors and other relevant information. SSA 
obtains additional information as necessary before making any 
determinations of eligibility/payment or entitlement/benefit amounts or 
adjustments thereto. With respect to military retirement payments to 
SSI recipients and SVB beneficiaries who are retired members of the 
Uniformed Services or their survivors, SSA proposes to accomplish this 
task by computer matching with the DOD.
    C. Authority for Conducting the Match: The legal authority for the 
matching program is contained in sections 1631(e)(1)(B), (f), and

January 31, 2008. Attachment 5 is a copy of the system notice with the 
appropriate routine use, i.e., RU l (e) (l) annotated.
    E. Description of Computer Matching Program: SSA, as the source 
agency, will provide DMDC with an electronic file which contains the 
data elements. Upon receipt of the electronic file, DMDC, as the 
recipient agency, will perform a computer match using all nine digits 
of the SSN of the SSI/SVB file against a DMDC database which contains 
the data elements. The DMDC database consists of extracts of personnel

survivors. The ``hits'' or matches will be furnished to SSA. SSA is 
responsible for verifying and determining that the data on the DMDC 
electronic reply file are consistent with the SSA source file and 
resolving any discrepancies or inconsistencies on an individual basis. 
SSA will also be responsible for making final determinations as to 
eligibility for/entitlement to, or amount of payments/benefits, their 
continuation or needed adjustments, or any recovery of overpayments as

quarterly basis. By agreement
