The Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program announced that it can verify when an applicant for a federal, state, or local government benefit or license has received deferred action under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

SAVE noted that 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 said, adding that SAVE user agencies may need to institute additional verification in these situations.
