Privacy Act Notice
The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) requires that the following notice be provided to you:
The authority for collecting the requested information from and about you is Section 484(a)(4)(B) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended [20 U.S.C. 1091 (a)(4)(B)]. You are advised that participation in the Federal Family Education Loan Program is voluntary, but the requested information is necessary for participation.
The principal purpose of this information is to verify your identity, to determine your Program eligibility and benefits, to permit the servicing of your loan(s), and, in the event it is necessary, to locate you and to collect on your loan(s) if it becomes delinquent or defaulted.
The routine uses of this information include its disclosure to federal, state, or local agencies, to private parties such as relatives, present and former employers, business and personal associates, to guaranty agencies, to credit bureau organizations, to educational and financial institutions, and to agency contractors in order to verify your identity, to determine your Program eligibility and benefits, to permit the servicing or collecting of your loan(s), to counsel you in repayment efforts, to investigate possible fraud and to verify compliance with Program regulations, or to locate you if you become delinquent in your loan(s) payments or you default.
You must provide all of the information requested in order to have your application processed.
Section 7(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a note) requires that when any federal, state, or local government agency requests that you disclose your Social Security Number (SSN), you must also be advised whether that disclosure is mandatory or voluntary, by what statutory or other authority your SSN is solicited, and what uses will be made of it.
Section 7(a)(2) of the Privacy Act provides that an agency may continue to require disclosure of your SSN as a condition to grant you a right, benefit, or privilege provided by law in cases in which the agency required this disclosure under statute or regulation prior to January 1, 1975, in order to verify the identity of an individual.
Disclosure of your SSN is required to participate in the Federal Family Education Loan Program. The United States Department of Education has, for several years, consistently required the disclosure of the SSN on application forms and other necessary Federal Family Education Loan Program documents adopted pursuant to published regulations.
Your SSN will be used to verify your identity, and as an account number (identifier) throughout the life of your loan(s) in order to record necessary data accurately. As an identifier, the SSN is used in such Program activities as determining your Program eligibility, certifying your school attendance and student status, determining your eligibility for deferment of payments, determining your eligibility for loan discharge, and for tracing and collecting from you in case you become delinquent in your loan payments or you default.
