SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. General

    The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, (Pub. L.

amended, requires a Federal agency participating in a computer matching 
program to publish a notice in the Federal Register for all matching 
programs.
    The Privacy Act, as amended, regulates the use of computer matching 
by Federal agencies when records contained in a Privacy Act System of 
Records are matched with other Federal, State, or local government 
records. It requires Federal agencies involved in computer matching 
programs to:
    (1) Negotiate written agreements with the other agency or agencies 
participating in the matching programs;
    (2) Obtain the approval of the matching agreement by the Data 
Integrity Boards (DIB) of the participating Federal agencies;
    (3) Publish notice of the computer matching program in the Federal 
Register;
    (4) Furnish detailed reports about matching programs to Congress 
and OMB;
    (5) Notify applicants and beneficiaries that their records are 
subject to matching; and
    (6) Verify match findings before reducing, suspending, terminating, 
or denying a person's benefits or payments. The last notice for this 
matching program was published at 73 FR 31516-31517 (June 2, 2008).

B. Purpose of the Matching Program

    The RRB will, on a daily basis, obtain from SSA a record of the 
wages reported to SSA for persons who have applied for benefits under 
the Railroad Retirement Act and a record of the amount of benefits paid 
by that agency to persons who are receiving or have applied for 
benefits under the Railroad Retirement Act. The wage information is 
needed to compute the amount of the tier I annuity component provided 
by sections 3(a), 4(a) and 4(f) of the Railroad Retirement Act (45 
U.S.C. 231b(a), 45 U.S.C. 231c(a) and 45 U.S.C. 231c(f)). The benefit 
information is needed to adjust the tier I annuity component for the 
receipt of the Social Security benefit. This information is available 
from no other source.
    Second, the RRB will receive from SSA the amount of certain social 
security benefits which the RRB pays on behalf of SSA. Section 7(b)(2) 
of the Railroad Retirement Act (45 U.S.C. 231f(b)(2)) provides that the 
RRB shall make the payment of certain social security benefits. The RRB 
also requires this information in order to adjust the amount of any 
annuity due to the receipt of a social security benefit. Section 10(a) 
of the Railroad Retirement Act (45 U.S.C. 231i(a)) permits the RRB to 
recover any overpayment from the accrual of social security benefits. 
This information is not available from any other source.
    Third, once a year the RRB will receive from SSA a copy of SSA's 
Master Benefit Record for earmarked RRB annuitants. Section 7(b)(7)) of 
the Railroad Retirement Act (45 U.S.C. 231f(b)(7)) requires that SSA 
provide the requested information. The RRB needs this information to 
make the necessary cost-of-living computation adjustments quickly and 
accurately for those RRB annuitants who are also SSA beneficiaries.
    SSA will receive weekly from RRB earnings information for all 
railroad employees. SSA will match the identifying information of the 
records furnished by the RRB against the identifying information 
contained in its Master Benefit Record and its Master Earnings File. If 
there is a match, SSA will use the RRB earnings to adjust the amount of 
Social Security benefits in its Annual Earnings Reappraisal Operation.

    SSA will also receive daily from RRB earnings information on 
selected individuals. The transfer of information may be initiated 
either by RRB or by SSA. SSA needs this information to determine 
eligibility to Social Security benefits and, if eligibility is met, to 
determine the benefit amount payable. Section 18 of the Railroad 
Retirement Act (45 U.S.C. 231q(2)) requires that earnings considered as 
compensation under the Railroad Retirement Act be considered as wages 
under the Social Security Act for the purposes of determining 
entitlement under the Social Security Act if the person has less than
