SSA evaluates a baptismal record issued in Cyprus under GN
00307.105A.2.d. and GN 00307.110 only if it shows that it is a Roman Catholic Church record or that the baptism was
according to the Roman or Latin rites.
If a religious record does not show that it is a Roman Catholic record, SSA accepts
it at face value if it:
a. clearly shows when (month, day and year) the age or DB was entered in the source
was issued at least 5 full years before the year in which the claimant first filed
for benefits; or
agrees materially with all other DB information in file
(including allegations on other applications and the numident) and at least one of
the pieces of evidence in file was recorded at least 5 full years before the claimant
first filed for benefits.
