Jobs and mouse

Did you know that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director León Rodríguez introduced and implemented myE-Verify?  This new website was designed to meet the needs of both U.S. employers and foreign nationals working in the U.S.  Nearly 550,000 employers use myE-Verify to verify the employment eligibility of the people that they hire.  With myE-Verify, workers now have a free and secure way to participate in the E-Verify process.  They can access features dedicated for employees, including Self Check and the Employee Rights Toolkit.  For added security, individuals will have their identities verified through Self Check, in order to create a myE-Verify account.

Using myE-Verify offers the following advantages:

  • Free and secure personal accounts to manage the use of your information in E-Verify and Self Check through the available myE-Verify features.
  • Ability to lock your social security numbers to prevent unauthorized or fraudulent use within E-Verify. You can proactively protect your identity from being used by others to illegally gain employment. Self Lock is available only to myE-Verify account holders.
  • Information to learn about your rights as well as responsibilities of employers in the employment eligibility verification process.
