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. 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 approval of the matching agreement by the Data Integrity Boards 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. General

    The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Public 
Law (Pub. L.) 100-503), amended the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) by 
describing the conditions under which computer matching involving the 
Federal government could be performed and adding certain protections 
for persons applying for, and receiving, Federal benefits. Section 7201 
of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-508) 
further amended the Privacy Act regarding protections for such persons.
    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. 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 approval of the matching agreement by the Data Integrity 
Boards 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.

B. SSA Computer Matches Subject to the Privacy Act

    We have taken action to ensure that all of our computer matching 
programs comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act, as amended.

    The purpose of this matching program is to set forth the terms, 
conditions and safeguards under which IRS will disclose to us certain 
return information for use in verifying eligibility for, and the 
correct amount of, benefits provided under Title XVI of the Act to 
qualified aged, blind, and disabled individuals; and Federally 
administered supplementary payments as described in section 1616(a) of 
the Act (including payments pursuant to an agreement entered into under 
section 212(a) of Public Law (Pub. L.) 93-66 (87 Stat. 152)) 42 U.S.C. 
1382 note.

C. Authority for Conducting the Matching Program

    The legal authority for this matching agreement between IRS and us 
is executed pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, (5 U.S.C. 522a), as 
amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, 
and otherwise; and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Final 
Guidance interpreting those Acts.
    Public Law 98-369, Deficit Reduction Act of 1984, requires agencies 
administering certain Federally-assisted benefit programs to use 
certain information to ensure proper distribution of benefit payments 
(98 Stat. 494).
    Section 6103 (1)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) (26 U.S.C. 
6103(1)(7)) authorizes IRS to disclose return information with respect 
to unearned income to Federal, State and local agencies administering 
certain Federally-assisted benefit programs under the Act.
    Section 1631(e)(1)(B) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1383(e)(1)(B)) requires 
verification of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) eligibility and 
benefit amounts with independent or collateral sources. This section of 
the Act provides that the ``Commissioner of Social Security shall, as 
may be necessary, request and utilize information available pursuant to 
section 1103(1)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986'' for purposes 
of Federally administered supplementary payments of the type described 
in 1616(a) of the Act (including payments pursuant to an agreement 
entered into under 212(a) of Pub. L. 93-66).
    The legal authority for the disclosure of our data under this 
agreement is 1106 of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1306), (b)(3) of the Privacy 
Act (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3)), and the regulations and guidance promulgated 
under these provisions.

applicants for and recipients of Title XVI benefits from the SSI record 
and Special Veterans Benefit, SSA/OASSIS 60-0103, as published at 71 FR

benefits or Federally administered State supplementary payments, or 
both. IRS will match our information with its Information Return Master 
File (IRMF) and disclose to us return information with respect to
