17 Sep 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.
