U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director León Rodríguez recently announced the launch of myE-Verify, a new website designed for employees. myE-Verify is a "one-stop shop" for employees to create and maintain secure personal accounts and access new features for identity protection, USCIS said.
myE-Verify includes Self Check and the Employee Rights Toolkit, among other things. Users will have their identities verified through Self Check when creating myE-Verify accounts. myE-Verify introduces the following new services:
- myE-Verify accounts – Allows employees and job seekers to set up free and secure personal accounts to manage the use of their information in E-Verify and Self Check through the available myE-Verify features.
- Self Lock – Allows individuals to lock their social security numbers to prevent unauthorized or fraudulent use within E-Verify. Self Lock is available only to myE-Verify account holders.
- myResources – A section of the myE-Verify site that contains information in multi-media formats to educate employees about their rights as well as the responsibilities of employers in the employment eligibility verification process.
myE-Verify accounts and Self Lock will initially be accessible to individuals in Arizona, Idaho, Colorado, Mississippi, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. In future releases, USCIS will roll out myE-Verify across the country with additional features focused on employees and job seekers.
E-Verify is used by nearly 550,000 employers to verify the employment eligibility of persons they hire.
