Information Exchange and Matching Decision Making Policy
Information Exchange and Matching is the process that Federal and State agencies use to share electronic information to improve their programs, reduce administrative costs, and improve public service. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is a government leader in Information Exchange and Matching with numerous computer matches and leading edge real-time exchanges. The Information Exchange Policy and Agreements staffs in the Office of Systems Security Operations Management (OSSOM) in the Office of Financial Policy and Operations (OFPO) are the lead agency components responsible for these activities.
SSA engages in various types of exchanges from SSN verifications to computer matches, depending on the partner agency's business needs.
There are several factors to be considered in SSA's decision making policy on whether to engage in an information exchange activity.
Disclaimer: This site provides information for Federal, State, and local agencies that are seeking to exchange data with the Social Security Administration (SSA). These exchanges are based on business needs related to specific health and income maintenance programs administered by those agencies and the applicable legal authority for SSA to make such disclosures. The information on these pages does not apply to non-governmental or private entities, companies, and businesses seeking data from SSA.
