SSA POMS Update re I-94s

"The Department of Homeland Security (DHS),
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is making systematic changes to
fully automate the paper Form I-94 (Arrival/Departure Record). As a
result, the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE)
program introduced a new method of verifying the I-94 in an effort to
ensure successful verification responses. In order to continue
successful SAVE verification, we updated the Social Security Number
Application Process (SSNAP) to accommodate a new document type, "I-94
w/Unexpired Foreign Passport," that you must now use when an applicant
submits both an I-94 and an unexpired foreign passport. Failure to enter
the unexpired foreign passport when available may significantly delay
SAVE verification." – SSA, Feb. 14, 2012
