The Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program is maintained and operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Verification Division. The SAVE program provides government agencies with a tool to verify the immigration status of noncitizens and certain U.S. citizen applicants seeking benefits. The information provided by SAVE is used to determine eligibility for state and federal benefits.
Effective immediately, staff are no longer required to run SAVE for noncitizen clients at Interim Report unless there is a new status or the information is questionable.
SAVE must still be run at every application and recertification if there are noncitizens in the household.
