Verify Employee Eligibility for Hire

Formerly referred to as the Basic Pilot Program, E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA).

E-Verify is currently free to employers. E-Verify provides an automated link to Federal databases to help employers determine employment eligibility of new hires and the validity of their Social Security numbers.

Employers should consider participating in E-Verify as it is currently the best means available for employers to verify electronically the employment eligibility for their newly hired employees. E-Verify virtually eliminates Social Security mismatch letters, improves accuracy of wage and tax reporting, protects jobs for authorized U.S. workers and helps U.S. employers maintain a legal workforce.
