Data Solutions Case Study

Alien Status Verification

Our team designed, developed, and integrated a real-time solution which allowed our client to streamline their existing processes.

The 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).

Our 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 the 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.
