USCIS Announces Expansion of myE-Verify Nationwide

U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has recently announced the expansion of myE-Verify nationwide.

The myE-Verify website (www.uscis.gov/mye-verify) gives workers and job-seekers free specially-designed resources and tools to learn about and participate in the E-Verify process.

Self Check. Anyone in the United States over the age of 16 can use Self Check to confirm his or her own employment eligibility. After you enter the requested information, Self Check verifies your data against the same records E-Verify checks to determine work eligibility in the United States.

Confirm that your records are in order or, if a mismatch occurs, learn how to make updates. For myE-Verify users, Self Check is also the first step in establishing a secure, personal myE-Verify account. Or, Self Check can simply be used as a tool on its own to confirm work eligibility, without moving on to open a myE-Verify account. It is also available in Spanish.

If your locked SSN is entered in E-Verify to confirm employment authorization, it will result in a Self Lock mismatch. The good thing with Self Lock, is that you are always in control – as you can unlock your SSN any time a new employer needs to verify your employment eligibility in E-Verify.

Your Self Lock will remain active for one year, unless you use your myE-Verify account to remove the lock. In addition, the Self Lock feature is only available to myE-Verify account holders.
