CAPI acceptance of expired LPR cards

Effective immediately, counties must accept expired Lawful Permanent Residence (LPR) cards when determining eligibility for the Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI).  If a claimant presents an expired LPR card, the county must verify immigration status using the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) system.  The county must accept an expired LPR card and grant benefits as otherwise eligible if the LPR card can be verified through SAVE.

This policy applies to any administrative hearing or rehearing that is currently pending.  (ACL 20-88, August 5, 2020.)
