An applicant’s statement that he and members of the household are U.S. citizens will be verified only when the statement is inconsistent with other information on the application, on previous applications, or on other documented information known to the county representative.

 

Example:  Verification will be required when a household member presents an apparently counterfeit Social Security card, or an employment office report stated that an individual was denied a job due to lack of U.S. citizenship, or an individual claimed citizenship but was born abroad.
