The Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify Self Check program is now available nationwide in both English and Spanish.
Starting Thursday, job hunters in every state across the country, as well as Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, are able to use Self Check to confirm their employment eligibility status.
Self Check was developed through a partnership between DHS and the Social Security Administration to provide individuals a tool to check their own employment eligibility status, as well as guidance on how to correct their DHS and SSA records.
It is the first online E-Verify service offered directly to workers. Available in English and Spanish, Self Check enables individuals to enter the same information into Self Check that employers enter into E-Verify.
Since the program’s inception, thousands of individuals have used Self Check to access their federal employment eligibility records and for guidance on how to correct potential record discrepancies prior to the hiring process.
