Each of our systems of records notices has a section titled, “Routine uses of records
maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses.”
Our health maintenance and income maintenance routine use permits disclosure of certain
non-tax return information to State and local agencies for their administration of
health maintenance and income maintenance programs. The health maintenance and income
maintenance routine use is cited in a number of our systems of records, including
but not limited to the following:
60-0058—Master Files of Social Security Number (SSN) Holders and SSN Applications;
60-0090—Master Beneficiary Record;
60-0103—Supplemental Security Income Record and Special Veterans Benefits Records;
60-0269—Prisoner Update Processing System.
Disclosure of certain tax return information under the Earnings Recording and Self-Employment
Income System (60-0059) system of record is permissible pursuant to Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code. For more information on the disclosure of tax return information, see GN 03314.002A.
NOTE: We may also make disclosures to State or local agencies under other systems of records
that contain the relevant information the State or local agency is requesting, as
long as the health maintenance and income maintenance routine use is in that system
of records and applies to the requested disclosure. Additionally, we may disclose
information when another routine use in the relevant system of records permits the
disclosure, depending upon the purpose of the request. Our systems of records and
their applicable routine uses can be reviewed here: http://www.socialsecurity.gov/foia/bluebook/bluebook.htm.
