USCIS Launches Spanish-Language myE-Verify and Expands Services

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the launch of a Spanish-language myE-Verify, plus the addition of Case Tracker and Case History services to the English and Spanish myE-Verify websites. myE-Verify is a one-stop shop for employees and job seekers to access features for identity protection in E-Verify and visibility into the E-Verify process.

“Since its inception, myE-Verify has provided employees with valuable online tools and resources regarding the employment eligibility verification process,” said USCIS Director León Rodríguez. “We are delighted to rlease our myE-Verify services for our Spanish-language customers.”

myE-Verify gives U.S. workers and jobseekers a free and secure way to participate in the E-Verify process by accessing features dedicated to employees, including Self Lock, Self Check, Case History, Case Tracker and the Employee Rights Toolkit.

The new Spanish-language myE-Verify will also have the following services, which are currently available on its English counterpart, launched in 2014:

  • myE-Verify accounts – Employees and job seekers in the U.S. can set up free and secure personal accounts to manage the use of their information in E-Verify and Self Check.
  • Self Lock – myE-Verify account holders can lock their Social Security numbers in E-Verify to prevent others from using their identities in E-Verify.
  • Self Check – Individuals can confirm their own employment eligibility by checking databases that E-Verify queries.
  • Resource Center – This section of the myE-Verify site contains information in multimedia formats to educate employees about their rights and the responsibilities of employers in the eligibility verification process.

myE-Verify is also introducing two new services. These new features are available nationwide in English and Spanish:

  • Case History – myE-Verify account holders can generate a report to see when their data was used in E-Verify.
  • Case Tracker – Individuals can track the status of their E-Verify case using the case verification number. While Case History does require users to create an account, Case Tracker does not.

To learn more about myE-Verify in English and Spanish, join USCIS at a national engagement on September 10.

E-Verify is the free web-based service from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security used by over 600,000 employers to confirm the employment eligibility of people they hire.
