SSA accepts civil records at face value if the document shows a recordation date after
the establishment of the civil records (as shown in GN 00307.587A).
SSA assumes the year of registration is the year of recordation, absent information
to the contrary, if the:
Birth occurred after 1967;
Birth certificate was issued by the Israeli authorities in an Israeli-held sector;
Recordation date is not shown.
SSA does not use certifications of records purportedly recorded before the establishment
of the civil records as evidence of age unless verified by the Federal Benefits Unit
or a Foreign Service Post, if authorized by the Regional Federal Benefits Officer.
