SAVE CaseCheck Now Easier for Benefit Applicants

From USCIS, 09/172015

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.
