SSA renews computer matching program with Department of Homeland Security

The Social Security Administration is renewing a computer matching program that it conducts with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) (Match 1010). This program establishes the conditions, safeguards, and procedures for disclosure of information relating to aliens for matching purposes by the DHS and the SSA. The DHS will disclose two separate data files thorough the computer matching operation for the SSA’s use in making federal benefit eligibility determinations for “Aliens Who Leave the United States Voluntarily” and “Aliens Who Are Removed from the United States.”

The matching program will become effective no sooner than 40 days after notice of the program is sent to Congress and the Office of Management and Budget or 30 days after the date the notice was published in the Federal Register, whichever is later. The program will remain in effect for at least 18 months from the effective date and may be extended for an additional 12 months (77 Fed. Reg. 32709, June 1, 2012).
