Alien Status Verification

Problem

To comply with Federal regulations and ensure that only those legally entitled to benefits received them, the client needed to verify the immigration status of applicants using the Systematic Alien Verifications for Entitlements (SAVE) program, maintained by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Challenges

  • Developing a real-time web application with a Federal data source
  • Providing seamless interface with existing web and mobile application systems
  • Ensuring compliance with growing array of state and Federal regulations
  • Adhering to stringent privacy and security requirements
  • Providing full audit functionality

Solution

After analyzing the impact of Federal regulations and defining business requirements, our team designed, developed, and integrated a real-time data solution that integrated SAVE program data into an existing data services hub. This integration allowed the client to streamline eligibility determination and recertification processes for resident aliens and qualified immigrants by automating the verification of their immigration status. In addition, by connecting all verification activities with an audit link to an active case file, this integration greatly increased system security.

Benefits

  • Automated searches eliminated time-consuming manual methods
  • Speedier eligibility determination
  • Increased staff productivity and accuracy
  • Improved detection and deterrence of fraud, waste, and abuse
