The Federal Claims Collection Act of 1966 as amended (Public Law 89-508) empowers the head of a Federal agency to enforce collection of claims for the United States of money or property arising out of the activities of the agency. Section 179.102 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, delegates authority to the Associate Director for Retirement and Insurance for collection of claims arising out of overpayment of Federal retirement benefits. Public Law 104-134 (April 26, 1996) requires that any person doing business with the Federal government furnish a social security number or tax identification number. This is an amendment to title 31, Section 7701. The information requested on this form is needed to evaluate your financial ability to repay OPM. The information may be shared with the General Accounting Office and the United States Department of Justice in the event litigation is required to enforce collection. This information may be shared and is subject to verification, via paper, electronic media, or through the use of computer matching programs, with national, state, local, or other charitable or social security administrative agencies in order to determine benefits under their programs, to obtain information necessary for determination or continuation of benefits under this program, or to report income for tax purposes. It may also be shared and verified, as noted above, with law enforcement agencies when they are investigating a violation or potential violation of civil or criminal law. Provision of the information is voluntary; however, failure to supply all requested information may result in a thorough financial investigation or a decision adverse to you.
