If evidence of citizenship is not available when the claim is received, enter an issue
of LAWFUL on the Development Worksheet (DW01) screen. Do not SPORT a disability claim
or adjudicate a claim, until this issue is resolved. If adjudication has been delayed
and alien status has expired, recontact to determine current status.
If the claim will be denied because a factor of entitlement is not met (i.e., relationship),
process as a regular denial.
If evidence of U.S. citizenship is not provided, follow the procedures in RS 00204.040D to suspend for failure to cooperate (FTC).
