If you use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when completing the FAFSA, the IRS will mail you a copy of the letter below about one week later. No action is needed. The purpose of this letter is to make sure that you are aware that your Social Security number was used in the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.

If you received this letter and you did not use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you should follow the instructions in the letter and contact the IRS. If you have children who have access to your personal information, it is possible that they could have used your information while completing the FAFSA.
