How do I terminate my company's participation in E-Verify?

Any E-Verify account may be closed voluntarily. To close an account, a program administrator, 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 or fax to 202-443-0215.

A program administrator may request termination electronically through E-Verify.

  1. Log into E-Verify with your assigned user name and password.
  2. From 'My Company,' select 'Close Company Account.'
  3. Enter the reason for requesting to close the account.
  4. Click 'Request Termination.'

E-Verify employer agents who choose to close their accounts should ensure that they notify their E-Verify employer agent client(s), and vice versa.

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 still need to be closed, even if you request to close your E-Verify account.
