The determination that an individual is an eligible alien, as described in SI 00502.100B., and the date of entry into the U.S. or attainment of status for SSI eligibility
purposes will be based on documents issued by the DHS or an immigration court, and/or
information provided by DHS.
The alien's status must be verified with DHS if there is any reason to question the
authenticity of the document(s) presented or the information on the document(s) is
insufficient to determine if the alien status requirements are met.Verify documents with DHS using SAVE or Form G-845. Verification of LAPR status will
be done under the procedures in GN 00303.440 as modified by SI 00502.115C.1.a.
Do not verify alien status if the individual is clearly not eligible based on their
alleged immigration status or DHS documents. Posteligibility reverification is conducted
if the alien's status changes, is questionable, or is subject to regular DHS renewal.
See SI 00502.115 for verification of status with DHS.
