IM-61 June 27, 2007

If non-USCIS documentation is accepted as reasonable evidence of immigration status, photocopy the evidence and transmit it to USCIS for verification using the SAVE secondary verification procedures.

Pending results from the secondary verification process, do not delay, deny, reduce, or terminate the individual’s eligibility for benefits based on immigration status.

Written consent from the claimant to submit the non-USCIS documentation to USCIS is not needed.
