DHS/USCIS/PIA-006 Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Verification Division administers the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program. SAVE is a fee-based inter-governmental initiative designed to help federal, state, tribal, and local government agencies confirm citizenship and immigration status prior to granting benefits and licenses, as well as for other lawful purposes. The purpose of this update is to discuss the changes to SAVE, including: (1) a new information collection, (2) the use of the Person Centric Entity Resolution microservice, (3) migration to a cloud-hosted environment, (4) transition from a paper-based process to a paperless process, and (5) to inform the public of USCIS’s use of information from SAVE in administering bonds posted as security for performance and fulfillment of the financial obligations of a bonded alien (someone who is not a U.S. Citizen) to the U.S. Government. USCIS is publishing an update to this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to describe the collection, use, maintenance, and disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII), as well as the risks associated with these updates.
