Computer Matching Programs

Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. § 552a), a computer matching program is required for any computerized comparison of two or more automated systems of records, or a system of records with non-Federal records, for the purpose of establishing or verifying eligibility of, or compliance with, statutory and regulatory requirements by applicants for, recipients or beneficiaries of, participants in, or providers of services with respect to cash or in-kind assistance or payments under Federal benefit programs.

Pursuant to 5 U.S.C § 552a(o), no record which is contained in a system of records may be disclosed to a recipient agency or non-Federal agency for use in a computer matching program except pursuant to a written agreement between the source agency and the recipient agency or non-Federal agency. SSA requires computer matching agreements (CMA) to be developed and approved by its Data Integrity Board for its matching programs, as defined by the statute.

In accordance with Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A-108 (December 23, 2016), the tables below list SSA’s annual matching activity reports as well as SSA’s active matching programs, including links to the corresponding Federal Register notices by which the public was informed of the programs and links to up-to-date copies of the matching agreements.
