A. Purpose

MyUSA ( provides an account to users that give them control over their interactions with government agencies and how government uses and accesses their personal information. Users have the option of creating a personal profile that can be reused across government to personalize interactions and streamline common tasks such as filling out forms. Government agencies can build applications that can request permission from the user to access their MyUSA Account and read their personal profile.

The information in the system is contributed voluntarily by the user and cannot be accessed by the government without explicit consent of the user; information is not shared between government agencies, except when the user gives explicit consent to share his or her information, and as detailed in the MyUSA System of Records Notice (SORN) (​fdsys/​pkg/​FR-2013-07-05/​pdf/​2013-16124.pdf).

The information collected is basic profile information, and may include: Name, home address, phone number, date of birth, gender, marital status and basic demographic information such as whether the individual is married, a veteran, a small business owner, a parent or a student.

Use of the system, and contribution of personal information, is completely voluntary.
