Under certain circumstances, an E-Verify account may be closed prior to the end of the 30-day period required by the E-Verify MOU. Those circumstances include:

  • The company no longer exists
  • Closing the account is necessary to protect the account from unauthorized access
  • A company has duplicate or unnecessary accounts
  • A company needs to reregister in order to change its E-Verify access method or
  • E-Verify determines that closing an account before 30 days is necessary based on the requirements of law or policy

To request that your E-Verify account be closed prior to 30 days from your notice of termination based on one of these circumstances, your written request for termination must:

  • Request that your E-Verify account be closed prior to 30 days from your notice of termination, as required by the E-Verify MOU
  • Explain why your account should be closed prior to 30 days from your notice of termination, referencing and explaining in detail one or more of the circumstances above and
  • Specify the date you would like your E-Verify account closed

Closing E-Verify accounts prior to the end of the 30-day period, required by the E-Verify MOU, is at the discretion of E-Verify.
