SSA issues notice of intent to establish new system of records entitled, Program Litigation File System

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

In accordance with the Privacy Act and agency disclosure regulations, the SSA has issued public notice of its intent to establish a new system of records entitled, Program Litigation File System (60-0278). The SSA will use this system to manage records involved in litigation related to challenges of the agency's policies and procedures, the constitutionality of provisions of the Social Security Act, and benefit determinations. The program is effective on May 29, 2019.

5 U.S.C. 5584 provides that a claim of the United States against a person arising out of an erroneous payment of pay or allowances, made on or after July 1, 1960, or arising out of an erroneous payment of travel, transportation or relocation expenses allowances, to an employee of the agency, may be waived in whole or in part by the authorized official, the head of the agency, and the Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts. The information the SSA collects will enable the Office of the General Counsel to efficiently and effectively manage the records of benefit claim cases being litigated in court, to provide management information to the agency, and for research and statistical purposes.
