USE OF SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER
Section 7(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 522a) requires that when any Federal, State, or local government agency requests an
individual to disclose his/her social security account number, that individual must also be advised whether that disclosure is mandatory
or voluntary, by what statutory or other authority the number is solicited, and what uses will be made of it.
Accordingly, applicants are advised that disclosure of their social security account number (SSAN) is required as a condition for
participation in the Alabama National Guard Educational Assistance Program, in view of the practical administrative difficulties which
the Program would encounter in maintaining adequate program records without the continued use of the SSAN.
The SSAN will be used to verify the identity of the applicant and as an account number (identifier) throughout the life of the grant in
order to record necessary data accurately. As an identifier, the SSAN is used in such Program activities as: determining Program
eligibility, certifying school attendance, making and verifying grant payments, and maintaining records of grant payments.
Authority for requiring the disclosure of an applicant’s SSAN is in section 7(a)2 of the Privacy Act, which provides that an agency may
require disclosure of an individual’s SSAN as a condition for the granting of a right, benefit, or privilege provided by law.
