Collection and Use of Personal Information
Sections 205(c)(4) and (5) of the Social Security Act, as amended, allow us to collect this information. We will use the information
you provide to correct your earnings record where any discrepancy exists. Furnishing us this information is voluntary. However,
failing to provide us with all or part of the information could affect your future eligibility for benefits and the amounts of benefits to
which you may become entitled.
We rarely use the information you supply for any purpose other than to correct your earnings record where any discrepancy
exists. However, we may use the information for the administration of our programs including sharing information:
1. To comply with Federal laws requiring the release of information from our records (e.g., to the Government Accountability
Office and Department of Veterans Affairs); and,
2. To facilitate statistical research, audit, or investigative activities necessary to assure the integrity and improvement of our
programs (e.g., to the Bureau of the Census and to private entities under contract with us).
A complete list of when we may share your information with others, called routine uses, is available in our Privacy Act System of
Records Notice entitled, Earnings Recording and Self-Employment Income System, 60-0059. Additional information about this
and other system of records notices and our programs are available from our Internet website at
www.socialsecurity.gov
or at
your local Social Security office.
We may share the information you provide to other health agencies through computer matching programs. Matching programs
compare our records with records kept by other Federal, State, or local government agencies. We use the information from these
programs to establish or verify a person’s eligibility for federally funded or administered benefit programs and for repayment of
incorrect payments or delinquent debts under these programs.
Paperwork Reduction Act Statement - This information collection meets the requirements of 44 U.S.C. § 3507, as amended by
