Form SSA-827, Authorization to Disclose Information to the Social Security Administration is a form used for providing written consent to release your personal information from medical, educational, and other required sources to the Social Security Administration (SSA). The latest version of the form - also known as the SSA Form 827 - was released in November 2012. Later editions are valid and can be used until exhausted. An SSA-827 fillable form is available for download and digital filing through the link below.
According to the U.S. laws and regulations, a medical, educational, or any other institution can release your personal information to the SSA only after it receives your signed authorization. The most convenient way to provide the authorization is to fill out the SSA-827. It is specifically designed to ensure you have all the information required for informed authorization and are advised on the particularities of a disclosure.
Federal laws allow the institutions that maintain your personal information to release this information if you sign only one authorization that allows releasing of all your personal information from all possible sources. The SSA officials will copy your authorization for each source they need to obtain information from.
