There is no place on the actual Form W-8BEN that asks for an affidavit of unchanged status. Form W-8BEN typically expires after three years (approximately). I suspect the affidavit is Chase's way of letting you notify them that things are unchanged. You should fill the blank with the date you signed your most recent W-8BEN.
