A Privacy Act (PA) Request is one in which a United States citizen or Legal Permanent Resident seeks records on herself/himself that are contained in a file retrievable by the individual's name or personal identifier. A PA request must be submitted in writing via postal mail or fax.
STEP 1: PREPARING YOUR REQUEST.
STEP 2: WHERE TO SEND A PA REQUEST.
You can send a Privacy Act request to:
Department of the Air Force
Freedom of Information and Privacy Act Office
1000 Air Force Pentagon
Washington, DC 20330-1000
Since Privacy Act requests must be signed, we cannot accept e-mail requests.
The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended at 5 U.S.C. 552a, protects records that are retrieved by personal identifiers such as a name, social security number or other identifying number or symbol. An individual is entitled to access to his or her records and to request correction of these records if applicable.
The Privacy Act prohibits disclosure of these records without written individual consent unless one of the twelve disclosure exceptions enumerated in the Act applies. These records are held in Privacy Act systems of records. A notice of any such system is published on this Privacy System Notices page.
As with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the Privacy Act binds only Federal agencies, and covers only records in the possession and control of Federal agencies.
You must be a United States citizen or an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence to the U.S. to make a request for Privacy Act records.
