E-Verify

E-Verify is an Internet based system operated by the DHS in partnership with the SSA that allows participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees.

E-Verify was first developed in 1997 in the wake of the 1996 immigration reform law and was set up as a voluntary aid for employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees.

E-Verify eliminates SSA mismatch letters, improves the accuracy of wage and tax reporting, protects jobs for authorized U.S. workers, and helps U.S. employers maintain a legal workforce.

E-Verify is free, is voluntary and is available for determining employment eligibility of new hires and the validity of their Social Security Numbers.
