Request the servicing Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) for Egypt (as explained in GN 00904.220) to verify evidence from that country only if:
a decision cannot be made based on the other evidence; or
the claimant states the evidence is correct and it would be sufficient, if verified,
to establish the factor of entitlement or establish a more advantageous date.
Be sure to include a clear and complete copy of the document to be verified. If both
sides of the document have been completed (or stamps have been placed on the reverse)
be sure to include copies of both sides. Specify in the request that the verification
needs to include a personal examination of the source record. The personal examination
is needed to determine the authenticity of the document, that the document accurately
reflects the source record and that the source record is unaltered and was made at
the time purported.
Ask the FBU to obtain a current certification if the verification shows that the document
submitted by the claimant differs materially from the source record.
NOTE: If conditions in that country prevent the FBU from verifying the evidence, it will
notify SSA and explain why it cannot comply with the request.
