We may disclose certain non-tax return information, including verification of Social
Security Numbers (SSN), to State and local agencies for their administration of the
State’s VR programs. Disclosures assist these agencies in determining individuals’
entitlement to and eligibility for VR services. State and local vocational rehabilitation
agencies may administer several different VR programs. We may disclose information
to State agencies for use in the State VR programs that meet the criteria of a health
maintenance or income maintenance program, as defined in GN 03314.001A.3. and GN 03314.001A.4. When the request meets our health maintenance or income maintenance program criteria,
disclosure is permissible under the routine use of the same name cited in a number
of our systems of records, including, but not limited to the following:
60-0058—Master Files of SSN Holders and SSN Applications System;
60-0089—Claims Folders System;
60-0090—Master Beneficiary Record; and
60-0103—Supplemental Security Income Record and Special Veterans Benefits System.
For information on verification of SSNs, see GN 03325.003.
NOTE: VR programs may involve the Ticket-to-Work (TTW) or Cost Reimbursement programs,
or both. For information on disclosure to administer both programs, see GN 03316.070. For information on providing medical information to State agencies for the Cost
Reimbursement or TTW program, see DI 13510.030.
