Components should contact the SSA Privacy Officer (PO) immediately, through the component
Privacy Act or Security Coordinator, for all requests for information involving national
security or other ad hoc disclosure situations. If the Privacy Act or Security Coordinator
is not available, contact the SSA PO via email at ^FOIA Public Liaison, phone at (410) 966-6645, or fax at (410) 966-0869.
Before referring the case to the SSA Privacy Officer, quickly find out as much as
information as possible about the crime or other activity prompting the request, the
requester's position in the law enforcement agency or other agency, and the information
needed. You may ask the requester to telefax a written request.
