SAVE Access Methods & Transaction Charges
The SAVE Program offers multiple system access methods based on the user’s needs:
SAVE charges for services based on the number and type of transactions. An initial electronic verification query incurs a base transaction charge. Certain access methods allow an opportunity to edit or correct the initial electronic query information (a “retry”). If a “retry” requires additional verification, an additional transaction charge is assessed. The electronic third step is free of charge****. Agencies submitting paper Forms G-845 will be charged $2.00 per case.
