By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

In accordance with the Privacy Act, the SSA has issued public notice of its intent to establish a new system of records entitled, Mass Emergency Notification System (MENS) (60-0386), hereinafter called the MENS Record System.

The agency is establishing the MENS Record System to cover information it collects about employees, contractors, and others who may be affected by emergency situations at an SSA site or property and may be notified about such situations through MENS. The SSA is transforming and modernizing agency emergency communications. The MENS Record system will enable the SSA to quickly notify individuals of any emergency or urgent situation that occurs in an area that the affected individual works or frequents or at another site or property for which the individual has an interest in receiving notifications from the system.

The system of records notice is applicable on April 15, 2019, with the exception of the routine uses, which are effective May 15, 2019.

For further information. For further information, contact Anthony Tookes, Government Information Specialist, Privacy Implementation Division, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of the General Counsel, SSA, Room G-401 West High Rise, 6401 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, Maryland 21235-6401, telephone: (410) 966-0097 (84 Fed.
