How To Check Your Own Employment Eligibility In The United States

March 21, 2011 · Print This Article


Today, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) launched E-Verify Self Check, the first online E-Verify program offered directly to the U.S. workforce. E-Verify Self Check, is a fast, simple, secure and free service, that enables individuals to voluntarily check their own employment eligibility status.

If any mismatches are found between the information you provide and your Department of Homeland Security or Social Security Administration records, Self Check will inform you of how to correct those mismatches.

Once you have confirmed your employment eligibility using Self Check, you are unlikely to encounter difficulties upon being hired by an E-Verify participating employer.

USCIS is releasing E-Verify Self Check in phases, with the first phase only accessible to users who maintain an address and are physically located in Arizona, Idaho, Colorado, Mississippi, Virginia, or the District of Columbia.
