The Freedom of Information Act allows members of the public to request records from various Federal government agencies. The FOIA was established to make the federal government accountable to the public for its actions and prevents agencies from having secret policies.

The Guide to Freedom of Information Act Requests explains how to request information and records from the Social Security Administration, details information that we can not disclose, and outlines the various fees that are involved with a request.

In addition, you may find information on SSA's implementation of Executive Order 13392 on Improving Agency Disclosure of Information.

The links at the left are available to facilitate you in your search for information.
