Request a Status Information Letter (SIL)

Please complete your online form below.

NOTE: The online form may not support all mobile devices.

If you did not register with Selective Service and are a man aged 26 or older, you may be ineligible for certain federal or state programs and benefits, including U.S. citizenship.

  • Some agencies may ask you to provide an “official status letter,” or Status Information Letter (SIL), from the Selective Service indicating if you were or were not required to register.
  • Immigrant men 31 and older who are seeking naturalization and did not register are no longer required to provide a Status Information Letter (SIL) or documentation of their Selective Service status to USCIS.
  • If asked by USCIS for a SIL, select “Immigrant Men 31 & Older” from the menu for a letter to provide.
