Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

The FOIA allows members of the public to request records from Federal agencies. The Federal government established FOIA to promote transparency and prevent agencies from having secret policies.

This guide to FOIA Requests at SSA explains how to request information and records from us, details information that we cannot disclose, and outlines the fees involved with a request.

Under the "Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)" submenu on this page, find the SSA procurement data most frequently requested under the FOIA.
