use the information you provide to respond to your request for access to the records we maintain about you or to process your
request to release your records to a third party. You do not have to provide the requested information. Your response is
voluntary; however, we cannot honor your request to release information or records about you to another person or organization
without your consent. We rarely use the information provided on this form for any purpose other than to respond to requests for
SSA records information. However, the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. § 552a(b)) permits us to disclose the information you provide on this

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. We use information from these matching programs to
establish or verify a person's eligibility for Federally-funded or administered benefit programs and for repayment of incorrect
payments or overpayments under these programs. Additional information regarding this form, routine uses of information, and
other Social Security programs is available on our Internet website, www.socialsecurity.gov
