E-verify Update

After a year-long overhaul, USCIS has launched a completely redesigned web interface for employers using the Agency's E-Verify Program.

The redesigned web interface for E-Verify provides employers more streamlined access and offers an expanded customer support section. The re-engineering of more than 200 pages has transformed the web interface user experience. The new web interface includes improved navigational tools to enhance ease-of-use, minimize errors, support compliance with the terms of use, and enable real-time validation of employers enrolling in E-Verify against commercial data.

A new home page, along with a new 'case alerts' feature, improved case management, and streamlined tutorials are among the improvements to the E-Verify website. The new interface also has enhanced security features such as masking Social Security numbers to further protect privacy and ensure that only valid companies enroll in E-Verify. This and other new features will also help minimize the chances of fraudulent access.

NOTE: All current E-Verify users are required to complete the updated tutorial. The tutorial takes about 20 minutes to complete and serves as a "how-to" of the new system.

For more information about the new interface, navigation, and tools please visit the E-Verify Redesign section of the E-Verify web page at http://www.dhs.gov/E-Verify.
