If an SSN applicant submits an I-766, accept it as evidence of asylee status when
the I-766 shows Category "A5", "A05", or "A-5". In the Enumeration System, select
"I-766 EAD Card" from the Primary DHS Document menu and "A5 ASYLEE" from the Category
list on the "Proof of Legal Alien Status" screen.
NOTE: An I-766 showing Category "C8", "C08", or "C-8" is NOT acceptable evidence of asylee
status as it indicates the alien has applied but not yet been granted asylum. For
additional policy instructions on an I-766 showing Category “C8”, “C08”, or “C-8”
for enumeration purposes, please see RM 10211.205.D.
