Privacy Act Statement
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has authority to collect the information
requested on the PAYMENT STUB under section 204 of the Social Security Act. Giving
us this information is voluntary. You do not have to do it. We will need this information
only if you choose to make payment by credit card. You do not need to fill out the
credit card information if you choose another means of payment (for example, by check
or money order).
If you choose the credit card payment option, we will provide the information you
give us to the banks handling your credit card account and SSA's account. This will
allow you to repay your overpayment with your credit card. We may also provide this
information to another person or government agency to comply with federal laws requiring
the release of information from our records. You can find these and other routine
uses of information provided to SSA listed in the Federal Register. If you want more
information about this, you may call or write any Social Security office.
We may also use the information you give us when we match records by computer. Matching
programs compare our records with those of other Federal, State, or local government
agencies. Many agencies may use matching programs to find or prove that a person qualifies
for benefits paid by the Federal government. The law allows us to do this even if
you do not agree to it.
Explanations about these and other reasons why information you provide us may be used
or given out are available in Social Security offices. If you want to learn more about
this, contact any Social Security office.
