NEW! myE-Verify Website for Workers and Jobseekers! (10/6/14)
On October 6th, USCIS announced the launch of myE-Verify, the new website that specializes in information and tools that serve the needs of workers and job seekers. Its features include the capability to create a unique, secure and personal myE-Verify account that gives access to the new Self Lock service. Self Lock lets users protect their identities by locking their social security numbers to prevent unauthorized or fraudulent use within E-Verify. The new website also includes Self Check and multi-media resources for workers and jobseekers to learn about employee rights and employment eligibility verification from their perspective.
myE-Verify accounts are now available in five states—Arizona, Idaho, Colorado, Mississippi, Virginia and the District of Columbia. myE-Verify will eventually expand to the entire United States and offer additional features in future releases.
