U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) posted an informational video on its Web site that provides an overview of the agency’s Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program.
The new video describes the immigration status verification process and explains how federal, state, and local benefit-granting agencies can apply to participate in the program. USCIS encourages agencies to view the video to determine if the SAVE program is appropriate for their immigration status verification needs.
The SAVE program is an intergovernmental initiative that assists benefit-granting agencies in determining an applicant’s immigration status. The program ensures that only entitled applicants receive federal, state or local public benefits and licenses.
Additionally, SAVE offers eligible agencies an efficient, secure and cost-effective method of immigration status verification. Specifically, the program checks the applicant’s information against millions of federal database records. Currently, more than 300 agencies are enrolled in the SAVE program.
The video, along with additional information about the SAVE program, is available at www.uscis.gov/SAVE .
