you provide will be used to determine if you are qualified to serve as a representative payee. Your response is voluntary. However,
failure to provide the requested information will prevent us from making a determination to select you as representative payee.
We rarely use the information provided on this form for any purpose other than for making representative payee selections. However, in
accordance with 5 U.S.C. § 552a(b) of the Privacy Act, we may disclose the information provided on this form (1) to enable a third party

the disclosure of the information from our records; and (4) to facilitate statistical research, audit or investigative activities necessary to

with those of other Federal, state or local government agencies. Information from these matching programs can be used to establish or
verify a person's eligibility for federally funded or administered benefit programs and for repayment of payments or delinquent debts
under these programs. The law allows us to do this even if you do not agree to it.
