20 CFR § 416.1610 - How to prove you are a citizen or a national of the United States: You are eligible for supplemental security income (SSI) benefits if you meet the requirements in subpart B. Among these are requirements that you must be a resident of the United States and either a citizen, a national, or an alien with a lawful right to reside permanently in the United States. Title 20. Employees' Benefits Chapter I. OFFICE OF WORKERS' COMPENSATION PROGRAMS, DEPARTMENT OF LABOR *Subchapter B*. FEDERAL EMPLOYEES' COMPENSATION ACT Part 25. COMPENSATION FOR DISABILITY AND DEATH OF NONCITIZEN FEDERAL EMPLOYEES OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES Subpart A. General Provisions Section 25.1. How are claims of Federal employees who are neither citizens nor residents adjudicated? This part describes how OWCP pays compensation under the FECA to *employees" of the United States who are neither citizens nor residents of the United States, any territory or Canada, as well as to any dependents of such employees. It has been determined that the compensation provided under the FECA is substantially disproportionate to the compensation for disability or death which is payable in similar cases under local law, regulation, custom or otherwise, in areas outside the United States, any territory or Canada and therefore a special schedule should apply to such cases This special schedule applies to any non-citizen non-resident Federal employee who is neither hired nor employed in the United States, Canada or in a possession or territory of the United States. Therefore, with respect to the claims of such employees whose injury (or injury resulting in death) has occurred subsequent to August 29, 2011, or may occur, the regulations in this part shall apply. https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/20/25.1 **Employee** means a person who is engaged to perform work for an employer, as defined under the general common law.
