SAVE CaseCheck Now Easier for Benefit Applicants

SAVE CaseCheck Now Easier for Benefit Applicants

On September 9, USCIS enhanced SAVE CaseCheck to make it easier for people applying for federal, state or local benefits to check the status of their immigration verification case.

Benefit-granting agencies may need to verify a person’s immigration status to process an application. The SAVE Program lets them do that, and CaseCheck lets applicants monitor the progress of the request.

Until now, to run a CaseCheck query, applicants had to obtain a case verification number from a participating SAVE agency. Now, they can enter their date of birth along with a number from one of these immigration documents:

Certificate of Citizenship

Certificate of Naturalization

Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status

Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record

Form I-94 stamp in an unexpired foreign passport

Permanent Resident Card

Employment Authorization Card

This update of CaseCheck will mean more convenience for applicants, and save time for benefit-granting agencies.
