SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: None. Matthew Ramsey, Executive Director, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of the General Counsel. System(s) of Records Participating Agencies SSA and RRB.

Purpose(s) This matching program establishes the conditions under which RRB will disclose to SSA information necessary to verify an individual’s selfcertification of eligibility for the Extra Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs program (Extra Help). It will also enable SSA to identify individuals who may qualify for Extra Help as part of the agency’s Medicare outreach efforts. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Categories of Individuals The individuals whose information is involved in this matching program are individuals who self-certify for Extra Help or may qualify for Extra Help. SSA matches RRB’s information with its Medicare Database File (MDB), which includes claimants, applicants, beneficiaries, ineligible spouses and potential claimants for Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B, Medicare Advantage Part C, Medicare Part D, and Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage subsidies. Categories of Records RRB will transmit its annuity payment data monthly from its RRB–22 system of records (SOR). The file will consist of approximately 600,000 electronic records. RRB will transmit its Post Entitlement System file daily. The number of records will differ each day, but consist of approximately 3,000 to 4,000 records each month. RRB will transmit files on all Medicare eligible Qualified Railroad Retirement Beneficiaries from its RRB–20 and RRB– 22 SORs to report address changes and subsidy changing event information monthly. The file will consist of approximately 520,000 electronic records. The number of people who apply for Extra Help determines in part the number of records matched.

GDIF–US is a pooled investment fund which is in the process of being formed as a Delaware limited partnership. Pursuant to an agreement with GDIF–US’s general partner, FSIM will be delegated the authority to manage and control GDIF–US. MUFG, FSIM, and GDIF–US are collectively referred to as ‘‘First State.’’ 2 The verified notice states that SRTV’s ownership currently consists of Class A and Class B interests. The Class A interests are held by PRC Holdings LLC, which is a subsidiary of PRC Funding LLC, which is a subsidiary of SteelRiver Arch Transport Holdings LLC (SRATH). The Class B interests are held by DPH Holdco LLC.
