SAVE

Electronic Immigration Status Verification

SAVE is a fast, secure, and reliable online service that allows federal, state, and local benefit-granting agencies to verify a benefit applicant’s immigration status or naturalized/derived citizenship.

SAVE is administered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a component of the Department of Homeland Security, and is dedicated to providing tailored training, support, and service to meet participating agency needs.

News

The date for SAVE users to download case information from the Historic Records Report if they want to retain information about these SAVE cases has been extended. SAVE user agencies now have until June 4, 2021 to download the report.
