Does the FBI Maintain a File On You? Want to See What it Says?

Typically the FBI will only release the files of deceased individuals.

One exception to that rule is when an individual is requesting information about themselves.

While requesting your own file is not much different than an ordinary request to the FBI there, there is an added kink in the process.

A self-request falls under the Privacy Act and not the Freedom of Information Act.

 It requires a special Department of Justice form stating, under penalty of perjury, that you are who you say you are.

The request should state clearly that you are requesting all documents with your name and any aliases in them.

 It should also provide any additional information that would help FOI/PA officers locate documents about yourself.
