The following AR codes in the PRSN segment of the SSR reflect nonqualified PRUCOL
alien status who are now grandfathered:
H - Silva v. Levi alien (SI 00501.420);
NOTE: AR Code H is not a valid code for months after 6/30/87.
J - Deportation/Removal withheld or Miscellaneous PRUCOL, considered to be nonqualified
aliens if Alien Eligibility Reason (AER) field is blank (SI 00501.420);
P - Alien who entered the U.S. before 1/1/72 with continuous residence since then
R - Alien granted lawful temporary resident (LTR) status (SI
00501.420); NOTE: LTRs were required to file for adjustment to LAPR status within a prescribed period
SI 00501.440C.1.). The period for filing for adjustment under the law closed in or before 1990
for LTRs whose immigration statuses were not under appeal. Thus, all records with
an AR code of “R” are questionable and should be reverified and updated. See SI 00502.153E.
T - Alien granted voluntary departure (SI 00501.420); or
W - Alien granted stay of deportation (SI 00501.420).
The SSI system is currently being modified to allow the posting of an AER code of
“9” (grandfathered cases) for nonqualified aliens who were receiving SSI benefits on
08/22/96. You will be notified how to input the new AER code when the systems changes
