The foreign agencies usually show dates in day/month/year format and in most instances,
this format is clearly indicated on the liaison form sent to SSA. Sometimes, however,
the day and month are reversed causing a material discrepancy. In these cases, the
verification may still be accepted if it is apparent that the day and month have been
reversed, that is, when the date verified by the foreign agency can only be read one
way (e.g. 13/2/48 can only be read as February 13, 1948), and all allegations and
evidence agree with this one reading.
