Acceptable forms of verification of citizenship include birth certificates, religious records, voter registration cards, certificates of citizenship or naturalization provided by INS, such as Identification Cards for use of Resident Citizens in the US (INS Form 1-179 or INS Form 1-197) or US passports. If the above forms of verification cannot be obtained and the person can provide a reasonable explanation as to why verification is not available, a signed statement will be accepted from someone who is a US citizen which declares, under penalty of perjury, that the member in question is a US citizen. The signed statement shall contain a warning of the penalties for helping someone commit fraud.
