GN 03316.020 Disclosure Without Consent to Administer Social Security Administration (SSA) Programs
Outside the United States (U.S.)
Our Office of Earnings and International Operations (OEIO), Division of International
Operations (DIO) is responsible for administering the Social Security program abroad,
with the exception of the Special Veterans Benefit (SVB) program under Title VIII.
Central processing sites (CPS) and field offices (FO) have collaborative responsibility
for administering the SVB program whose beneficiaries reside abroad. Since we have
no offices outside the U.S., the following agencies assist OEIO, DIO, CPS and FOs
in these responsibilities by providing their facilities and services:
Department of State (DOS) foreign service posts in various foreign countries;
Department of Veterans Affairs, Regional Office - Manila, Philippines, and other parts
of the Asia-Pacific region; and
American Institute in Taiwan, a private corporation under contract to DOS in Taiwan.
We may disclose relevant non-tax return and tax return information to these agencies
from any systems of records that has a routine use permitting the disclosure to these
agencies for purposes of administering our programs. You can view a full listing of
all of our system of records and their routine uses at https://www.ssa.gov/privacy/sorn.html.
