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.
