Participating Agencies: SSA and IRS. Authority for Conducting the Matching Program: The legal authority for Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 6103(1)(7) authorizes IRS to disclose return information with respect to unearned income to Federal, state, and local agencies administering certain benefit programs under the Act. Section 1860D–14 of the Act requires the Commissioner of Social Security to determine the eligibility of applicants for the prescription drug subsidy who self-certify their income, resources, and family size. Pursuant to section 1860D– 14(a)(3) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1395w– 114(a)(3)), SSA must determine whether a Social Security Part D eligible individual is a subsidy-eligible individual, and whether the individual is an individual as described in section 1860D–14(a) of the Act. Purpose(s): The purpose of this matching program is to sets forth the terms, conditions, and safeguards under which IRS will disclose to us certain return information for the purpose of verifying eligibility for the Prescription Drug Subsidy Program (Subsidy) and or determining the correct subsidy percentage of benefits provided under VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:29 Oct 25, 2017 Jkt 244001 section 1860D–14 of the Act.

This matching agreement between IRS and us is executed under the Privacy Act of 1974, (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, and the regulations and guidance promulgated thereunder. Categories of Individuals: The individuals whose information is involved in this matching program are beneficiaries who apply for Medicare prescription drug subsidy under section 1860D–14 of the Act. They will self– certificate on the application form the applicant’s income, resources, and family size. We will verify each applicant’s self-certification information before making a subsidy determination. When Medicare beneficiaries apply for the subsidy, and we cannot otherwise verify the income information provided on an application, SSA discloses to IRS the applicant’s name and Social Security number. Categories of Records: When beneficiaries apply for the Medicare prescription drug subsidy under section 1860D–14 of the Act, they must selfcertify on the application form the applicant’s income, resources, and family size. Once each year, we electronically transmit the identifying information of each current subsidy recipient to IRS. When there is a match of individual identifier, IRS discloses to us: a. Payee Account Number, b. Payee Name and Mailing Address, c. Payee Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), d. Payer Name and Address, e. Payer TIN, and f. Income Type and Amount. System(s) of Records: We will provide IRS with identifying information with respect to applicants for, and recipients of, the prescription drug subsidy from the existing Medicare Database (MDB File) system of records, 60–0321 published at 71 FR 42159 (July 25, 2006). Unearned income information provided by IRS is maintained in the MDB File.
