SSA announces new matching program with Office of Child Support Enforcement

In accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act, the SSA has announced a new matching program with the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE).
Under the matching program, the OCSE will provide the SSA with quarterly wage and unemployment insurance information from the National Directory of New Hires (NDNH) for the administration of Title II Disability Insurance (DI). The computer matching agreement governs the use, treatment, and safeguarding of the information exchanged.
The SSA will use the quarterly wage information to establish or verify eligibility, continuing entitlement, or payment amounts, or all of the above, of individuals under the DI program. The agency also will use the unemployment insurance information to establish or verify eligibility, continuing entitlement, or payment amounts, or all of the above, of individuals under the DI program if the SSA is legally required to use the unemployment insurance information for such purposes.
The deadline to submit comments on the proposed matching program is June 22, 2018. It will become applicable on June 17, 2018, and will expire on December 18, 2019. Interested parties may comment on the notice by either telefaxing to (410) 966-0869, writing to Mary Ann Zimmerman, Acting Executive Director, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of the General Counsel, Social Security Administration, 617 Altmeyer Building, 6401 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21235-6401, or emailing Mary.Ann.Zimmerman@ssa.gov.
