The Privacy Act requires federal agencies to provide a notice, or “Privacy Act statement” whenever an agency asks for an individual's personal information (usually on a form) and the information will become part of a system of records. The Privacy Act statement must explain why the personal information is being collected and how it will be used.
Below is NCUA’s Privacy Act Statement for information collected and maintained in NCUA-22, Examination and Supervision System. This system includes MERIT, NCUA Connect, DEXA, and the Admin Portal.
