In addition to the uses of information described in the preceding Privacy Act Notice, information you provide may be used, without your consent, in automated matching programs. These matching programs are a computer comparison of Railroad Retirement Board records with records kept by other Federal agencies or State and local governmental agencies. Information from these matching programs is used to establish or verify a person's eligibility for benefits and for repayment of benefits or delinquent debts.
What are Computer Matching Programs?
Computer matching programs compare our records with those of other Federal, State, or local government agencies. All agencies may use matching programs to find or prove that a person qualifies for benefits paid for by the Federal government.
How do Computer Matching Programs Affect You?
On forms that you fill out for us, you give us facts about yourself. Sometimes, we check the facts you and others give us. We use computer matching to do the checking. The law allows us to check this way even if you do not agree to it. We can also give any facts we have about you to other government agencies for them to use in their computer matching programs.
