The United States Customs and Immigration Service and the Social Security Administration now recognize the Background Network, Inc., as a DESIGNATED AGENT under the S.A.V.E. Program. This program is national in scope, and the Background Network, Inc., provides services under this program. The S.A.V.E. Program is an intergovernmental, information-sharing initiative designed to aid eligibility workers in determining a non-citizen applicant’s immigration status, with the purpose to ensure that only entitled non-citizen applicants receive federal, state, or local public benefits and licenses. The S.A.V.E. Program is an information service for benefit-issuing agencies, institutions, licensing bureaus, and other entities. The S.A.V.E. Program does not make determinations on any non-citizen applicant’s eligibility for a specific benefit or license.
Under the SAVE Program a non-citizen is never denied a benefit or license based solely upon the response from an Initial Verification. An Additional Verification (automated or manual) procedure is in place as a precautionary measure.
Clients, please note: Procedures under this program are tight, narrow and strict. Please inquire and discuss this with Ryan Sherman, Operations Manager, in advance, so that requirements are understood and met. For more on this call us at 1-877-992-4325.
The Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program is an intergovernmental, information-sharing initiative designed to aid Federal, state and local benefit-issuing agencies and licensing bureaus in verifying a non-citizen applicant’s immigration status, thereby ensuring that only eligible non-citizens receive public benefits and licenses.
