Any E-Verify account may be closed voluntarily. To close an account, a program administrator, corporate administrator, the signatory of the E-Verify memorandum of understanding (MOU), or an authorized company representative must submit written notice to E-Verify 30 days in advance of the date that the employer would like to close the account. Employers must request termination electronically through E-Verify, or submit a written termination notice to E-Verify@dhs.gov or  fax to 202-443-0215.

A corporate administrator may request termination electronically through E-Verify as follows:

  1. Log into E-Verify with your assigned login and password.
  2. From 'My Company Locations' click 'Close Company Accounts.'
  3. Enter the reason for requesting to close the account.
  4. Click 'Request Termination.'

You must continue to use E-Verify in accordance with the MOU during this 30-day period or until you have received an e-mail confirming that the account is closed, whichever is sooner. All open E-Verify cases must be closed, even if you request to close your E-Verify account.
