(FECR), a Class II rail carrier operating in the state of Florida, and Texas Pacifico Transportation, Ltd. (Pacifico), a Class III rail carrier operating in the state of ´ Texas. In addition, GMexico Transportes filed an amendment to its verified notice of exemption to identify and encompass its parent company, ´ Grupo Mexico, S.A.B. de C.V. (Grupo ´ Mexico), also a non-carrier holding company,1 and to identify Copper Basin Railway, Inc. (Copper Basin), a Class III rail carrier operating in the state of Arizona, as an additional carrier which ´ Grupo Mexico controls.2 Control of these three rail carriers by Grupo ´ ´ Mexico and GMexico Transportes will be effected upon the merger of GMXT Florida Merger Sub, Inc. (GMXT Merger Sub), a non-carrier subsidiary of ´ GMexico Transportes, with and into Florida East Coast Holdings Corp. (FEC Holdings), a non-carrier currently controlling FECR.3 The transaction may be consummated on or after May 28, 2017, the effective date of the exemption.4 1 GMexico Transportes filed the verified notice of ´ exemption and the amendment to that notice identifying itself as the entity obtaining Board authority in this proceeding. However, because ´ Grupo Mexico is the ultimate parent company of ´ ´ GMexico Transportes, and because Grupo Mexico is the entity in ultimate control of both Pacifico and Copper Basin, this proceeding has been recaptioned ´ to include Grupo Mexico. 2 It appears that Grupo Mexico did not obtain ´ Board authority to have common control of more than one rail carrier when it acquired Copper Basin. If that is the case, and if such authority was ´ required, the Board expects Grupo Mexico to promptly submit an appropriate filing for authorization of that common control. 3 On April 10, 2017, GMexico Transportes and ´ FEC Holdings jointly filed a motion for protective order under 49 CFR 1104.14(b), which will be addressed in a separate decision. 4 Because GMexico Transportes amended its ´ verified notice of exemption on April 28, 2017, that date is the official filing date and the basis for all subsequent dates.

    The Commissioner of Social Security is required to verify 
eligibility of a recipient or applicant for SSI using independent or 
collateral sources. SSI benefits may not be determined solely based on 
declarations by the applicant concerning eligibility factors or other 
relevant facts. Information is also obtained, as necessary, in order to 
assure that SSI benefits are only provided to eligible individuals (or 
eligible spouses) and that the amounts of such benefits are correct. 
Section 1631(e)(1)(B) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1383(e)(1)(B)).
    Subsection 1631(f) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1383(f)) provides that 
``the head of any federal agency shall provide such information as the 
Commissioner of Social Security needs for purposes of determining 
eligibility for or amount of benefits, or verifying information with

SSA to verify earnings of beneficiaries/recipients to ensure accurate

PURPOSE(S):
    The purpose of this matching program is to govern the following 
information exchange operations between OCSE and us from the National 
Directory of New Hires (NDNH): online query access for Supplemental 
Security Income (SSI), Disability Insurance (DI), and Ticket-to-Work 
and Self-Sufficiency (Ticket) programs, and SSI Quarterly Wage batch 
match. This agreement also governs the use, treatment, and safeguarding 
of the information exchanged. The agreement assists us (1) in 
establishing or verifying eligibility or payment amounts, or both under 
the SSI program; (2) in establishing or verifying eligibility or 
continuing entitlement under the DI program; (3) in administering the 
Ticket programs. These activities include overpayment avoidance and

    OCSE and SSA published notice of the relevant SORs in the FR SSA's 
SORs are the Supplemental Security Income Record and Special Veterans 
Benefits (SSR/SVB), SSA/OASSIS, 60-0103 published January 11, 2006 at 
71 FR 1830, and amended at 72 FR 69723 (December 10, 2007); and the 
Completed Determination Record-Continuing Disability Determination file 
(CDR-CDD), SSA/OD, 60-0050, published January 11, 2006 at 71 FR 1813, 
and amended at 72 FR 69723 (December 10, 2007).
    OCSE will match SSA information in the SSR and CDR-CDD against the 
new hire, quarterly wage, and unemployment insurance information 
furnished by state and federal agencies maintained in its SOR ``OCSE 
National Directory of New Hires'' (NDNH), No. 09-80-0381, established 
by publication in the FR on April 2, 2015 at 80 FR 17906. The 
disclosure of NDNH information by OCSE to SSA constitutes a ``routine 
use,'' as defined by the Privacy Act. 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3). Routine use 
(9) of the SOR authorizes disclosure of NDNH information to SSA, 80 FR 
17906, 17907 (April 2, 2015).
    SSA will access the OCSE web service when making online queries for 
new hire, quarterly wage, and unemployment insurance information in the 
NDNH. To comply with limitations on disclosure and to prohibit 
browsing, SSA access is restricted by anti-browsing technology 
(permission modules) to only those Social Security numbers (SSN) that 
have a direct business relationship with SSI, DI, or Ticket programs 
(that is, the record must have a valid SSI, DI, or Ticket payment or 
application issue). If no business relationship exists with SSA, OCSE 
denies access to NDNH and the user is unable to proceed. If a business 
relationship exists with SSA, SSA can access the NDNH via the OCSE web 
service to display SSN-specific new hire, quarterly wage, or 
unemployment insurance information in the NDNH. The MFQM or eView 
extracts information from SSA's SSR (for SSI recipients) or CDR-CDD 
(for ticket holders and disability beneficiaries) to facilitate query 
access.
