Categories of Records and Persons Covered by the Matching Program 1. Aliens Who Leave the United States Voluntarily (SSI) DHS will disclose to us information from the Benefit Information System (BIS) system of records, DHS/USCIS– 007, 73 FR 56596 (September 29, 2008). DHS will electronically format the BIS data for transmission to us. BIS data is comprised of data collected from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) immigration systems. USCIS data to be used to accomplish this matching agreement currently comes from the CLAIMS 3 Mainframe database. We will match the DHS information with our systems of records: Master Files of Social Security Number (SSN) Holders and SSN Applications (Enumeration System), SSA/OEEAS 60– 0058, last published on December 29, 2010 (75 FR 82121), and the Supplemental Security Income Record and Special Veterans Benefits (SSIR/ SVB or SSR), SSA/OASSIS 60–0103, last published on January 11, 2006 (71 FR 1830). 2. Aliens Who Are Removed From the United States (RSDI and SSI) DHS will disclose to us information from Immigration and Enforcement VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:30 Dec 01, 2014 Jkt 235001 Operational Records System (ENFORCE), DHS/ICE–011, 75 FR 23274, last published on May 3, 2010. DHS will retrieve information on removed aliens from the DHS database known as the Enforcement Integrated Database (EID) and electronically format it for transmission to SSA. Our systems of records used in the match are the Master Files of Social Security Number (SSN) Holders and SSN Applications, (Enumeration System), SSA/OEEAS, 60–0058, last published on December 29, 2010 (75 FR 82121), the Supplemental Security Income Record and Special Veterans Benefits (SSR), SSA/ODSSIS, 60–0103, last published on January 11, 2006 (71 FR 1830), the Master Beneficiary Record (MBR), SSA/OEEAS 60–0090, last published on January 11, 2006 (71 FR 1826) and the Prisoner Update Processing System (PUPS), SSA/OPB 60–0269, last published on March 8, 1999 (64 FR 11076). The Unverified Prisoner System (UPS) is a subsystem of PUPS. UPS users perform a manual search of fallout cases where the Enumeration and Verification System is unable to locate an SSN for an alien deportee. 3. Under an existing Interagency Agreement (IAA) between SSA and DHS, we have automated access to the DHS Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program that utilizes the VIS, DHS–USCIS–004, 77 FR 47415 (August 8, 2012). This system of records provides information on the current immigration status of aliens who have Alien Identification Numbers (‘‘A’’ number). We will use the automated access to the SAVE program to verify current immigration status of aliens where the immediate EID match or any future claims activity indicate an alien has been removed or deported. The parties do not consider this verification as a separate match subject to the provisions of the CMPPA; the parties will conduct such verifications in compliance with the terms of the aforementioned IAA. The systems of records involved in this computer matching program have routine uses permitting the disclosures needed to conduct this match. E. Inclusive Dates of the Matching Program The effective date of this matching program is January 19, 2015, provided that the following notice periods have lapsed: 30 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register and 40 days after notice of the matching program is sent to Congress and OMB.
