Verifying Applicants’ Extended Deferred Action under DACA

SAVE can verify when a federal, state, or local government benefit or license applicant has received deferred action under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). These applicants may present an unexpired Form I-766, Employment Authorization Document (EAD) in combination with an I-797 Extension Notice issued by USCIS showing that their deferred action has been extended for one year. This unexpired EAD must contain a Category code of C33 and be issued on or after July 28, 2020. SAVE user agencies may need to institute additional verification in these situations.
