Follow GN 00303.610 to GN 00303.640 to verify all immigration documents submitted
to establish LAPR status.
When the individual attains age 65 before acquiring LAPR status, the first month of
eligibility cannot be earlier than the month in which LAPR status is acquired. The
ADM/ADJ DATE field on the I-551 identifies the date the alien was admitted for permanent
If the I-551 does not have an entry in the ADM/ADJ date field or if the I-151 does
not show a date of entry, contact DHS to determine the date.
(See GN 00303.440 for determining and documenting LAPR status.)
CAUTION: While other sources can be used to determine an alien's date of entry to the U.S.,
only DHS can provide the beginning LAPR date or date of adjustment in status.
