DOL and SWA administer the WOTC program and, therefore, are income maintenance programs.
These agencies may request SSI verification information under the applicable Privacy
Act routine use for federal and state administration of health and income-maintenance
programs. When the request relates to the WOTC program, we can release information
directly to DOL and SWA without consent. However, since the WOTC program is not administered
under the Social Security Act, we must charge DOL and SWA the appropriate fee for
providing the information, even though consent is not required.
