For Benefit Applicants


 If you have applied for a public benefit, your benefit-granting agency may verify your immigration status using the SAVE Program as part of their assessment while deciding if you are eligible to receive the benefit they issue.

It is the responsibility of the agency to follow the SAVE verification process. The SAVE Program does not determine your eligibility for benefits or licenses.

SAVE invites you to learn more about our program’s verification process, and steps you can take to help SAVE and your benefit-granting agency verify your immigration status as quickly as possible.
