What is SAVE?

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services department has a program known as the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or SAVE. The purpose of this program is to provide access to agencies that benefit those who are going through the immigration process to obtain citizenship. When these agencies provide a person benefits, they need to verify that person’s immigration status. This program allows them to quickly and easily verify the status of their immigration to ensure they are giving the correct people the correct benefits. This is very beneficial because it makes sure that people are not scamming the system and that the people that truly need it are receiving these benefits.

The types of agencies that can register to be a part of SAVE can include a wide range of organizations such as public housing agencies, an educational institution, or housing and urban development. The agencies that provide people with benefits can be local, state, or federal organizations.

SAVE CaseCheck is a new program that allows people who have applied for these benefits through agencies to check whether or not the approval for them to receive the benefits has been approved or not. In order to use SAVE CaseCheck, you will have to provide your date of birth on the website as well as another form of identification that can assist in determining your status. These may include certificates of citizenship or naturalization, a permanent resident card, or a number of other documents that you can find on the USCIS SAVE website.
