Chapter 40 . Public Information
Section 30. Proof of age

2 AAC 40.030. Proof of age

(a) The administrator will consider a valid birth certificate or delayed certificate of birth as conclusive proof of an applicant's age.

(b) In the absence of a birth certificate or delayed certificate of birth, the applicant may submit other documents to establish the applicant's date of birth. Documents preferred for this purpose are

(1) evidence of verified age with the United States Social Security Administration;

(2) physicians' or midwives' records of birth;

(3) school records or United States census records; and

(4) immigration records, naturalization records, military records, or passports.

(c) Other documents, including insurance policies, church records of baptism or confirmation, voting records, marriage records, employment records, labor union records, a family Bible or equivalent family records, fraternal organization records, vaccination records or birth certification of a child or children of the applicant, may be submitted in an effort to establish the applicant's date of birth.

(d) In determining the persuasive value of documents submitted under (b) or (c) of this section, the administrator will consider the date of the documents and the circumstances under which they were established or recorded.

(e) A copy of a record certified as true and correct by the official with custody of the original record may be substituted for an original record.

(f) If an applicant cannot establish his or her date of birth under (a), (b), or (c) of this section within 180 days after making initial application, the applicant may reapply and submit the affidavits of at least three individuals who have direct knowledge that the applicant is at least 65 years of age. Three affidavits of individuals who have direct knowledge of the applicant's birth and who prove they are at least 70 years old will be considered conclusive proof of age. The affidavits of other individuals whose age can be proven may be considered by the administrator.
