Although most men register when they are 18, as required by law, some fail to do so until they are older. In some cases, they wait too long. If you are now 25, you have until the day before your 26th birthday to register. Selective Service does not have the authority to accept late registrations after-a man reaches age 26. Selective Service officials cau- tioned that, with few exceptions, a man who fails to register before turn- ing 26 will forfeit his eligibility for certain benefits, such as federal stu- dent aid, job training, and most feder- al employment, in addition to facing possible prosecution as a felon. Registration is also an eligibility requirement for male immigrants seeking U.S. citizenship. Some states also require registra- tion for state student aid, entrance to state-supported colleges and universi- ties, state employment, and permis- sion to practice law. Men age 18 through 25 who have not yet registered can avoid the risk of prosecution and loss of benefits by registering promptly at any local post office or on the Internet Selective Service home page (http//www.sss.gov). If men need to verify their registration or obtain their Selective Service Number, this can also be done at the home page. Failure to register is a felony punish- able by a fine of up to $250,000, up to five years in prison, or both. Men can register with Selective Service up to 30 days prior to their 18th birthday. Early registration may be necessary if verification of regis- tration is required for applications for a student loan, college entrance, job training, or a federal job. Over 13 million men age 18 through 25 are currently registered with Selective Service. Of those, 234,874 are from Minnesota. i I 00OOlf00 Y21LL00' PILL00'00 TNAhJ 66 TONI Of GIq FOg_ DET/AiL.
