On March 21, 2011, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the launch
of E-Verify Self Check—an innovative service that allows individuals in
the United States to check their employment eligibility status before
formally seeking employment.
Self Check is the first online E-Verify program offered directly to
workers and job seekers. This voluntary, free, fast and secure service
was developed through a partnership between DHS and the Social Security
As of March 21, 2011, E-Verify Self Check
