The policy in GN 00204.003B.3.- GN 00204.003B.4. applies to all SVB applications.
In addition, a third party may sign an application solely for the purpose of protecting
the claimant's filing date if a protective filing does not already exist or the claimant
is unable to sign his/her own application before the 60-day protective filing period
ends and a loss of qualification/entitlement would result. (See VB 00201.025 for determining the protective filing period.)
