collect the information requested on this form. The information you provide will be used to make a
decision on this claim. Your response is voluntary. However, failure to provide the requested
information may prevent an accurate and timely decision on any claim filed, or could result in the
loss of benefits.
We rarely use the information provided on this form for any purpose other than for determining
entitlement to Social Security benefits. We may, however, disclose the information provided on this
form in accordance with approved routine uses of the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. § 552a(b)), which

the integrity of SSA programs.
We may also use the information you provide when we match records by computer. Computer
matching programs compare our records with those of other Federal, State, or local government
agencies. Information from these matching programs can be used to establish or verify a person's
eligibility for Federally-funded or administered benefit programs and for repayment of payments or
delinquent debts under these programs.
A complete list of routine uses for this information is contained in our System of Records Notice
