Do not accept a subpoena or other compulsory process requiring disclosure of information
if the document is directed to HHS, its Secretary, SSA, its Commissioner, or any Central
Office (CO) official.
If an officer of the law attempts to serve such a document, inform the officer that
you lack authority to accept the document. If the officer persists, consult the RCC
through the ARC MOS or the Program Service Center (PSC) Director (in the field) or
the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) (in CO).
