Frequently Asked Questions Investigations

Is it okay if I guess at dates and addresses that I barely remember?

Providing information that is as complete and accurate as possible will assure that your investigation is completed in an efficient and timely manner. If you are unable to answer a question with precision, provide approximate information, note that you have done so on the questionnaire.  If you are interviewed in person, point out the approximated information on the questionnaire to the Investigator.

Estimate the date (month and year) to the best of your ability and check the "EST" checkbox, indicating that this is an estimated date.
