DHS Launches E-Verify Self-Check System


by in Immigration

DHS recently launched a new web-based application that lets workers verify their work eligibility status.

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, along with Immigration Service Director Alejandro Mayorkas spoke today about the new E-Verify Self Check. This tool allows potential workers who are in the country to verify their own employment eligibility status before the apply for work with a prospective employer.

“E-Verify is a smart, simple, and effective tool that allows us to work with employers to help them maintain a legal workforce,” Napolitano was quoted as saying. “The E-Verify Self Check service will help protect workers and streamline the E-Verify process for businesses.”

The applications is the result of a collaboration between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA). It is the first internet E-Verify program that has been available to those looking for work who are unsure if they are authorized for employment in the United States. The service does not cost anything, is totally voluntary and affords workers more protection against abuse and potential complications in beginning a new job.

The system has four components:

  1. Users key in data online including their biographical information;
  2. Their identity is confirmed by answering queries pertaining to private information;
  3. Their social security or Alien (A-number) is entered;
  4. E-Verify Self Check then confirms the users’ information against available SSA and DHS databases and returns information on users’ employment eligibility status.
