HMIS FAQ
Q

Should I get documentation of veteran status? I’m worried that someone might say they’re a veteran, but they really aren’t.

No, unless your program’s funder has eligibility requirements for veteran status, you should never require someone to provide documentation in order to answer this universal data element. Requiring documentation of military service would unnecessarily slow down the enrollment process.
