E-Verify (formerly known as the Basic Pilot/Employment Eligibility Verification Program) is an Internet based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA) that allows participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees. 

E-Verify is free and voluntary and is the best means available for determining employment eligibility of new hires and the validity of their Social Security Numbers.

See "Program Highlights" on the left side of this page for "E-Verify Program Statistics."

Introduction of the U.S. Passport Card

The U.S. Department of State began production of the U.S. passport card on July 14, 2008.  The passport card may be used by those entering the U.S. by land or sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda.  The passport card is a valid passport that attests to the U.S. citizenship and identity of the bearer and is acceptable as a List A document for the Form I-9.  The passport card may also be used in E-Verify if it is presented to an employer for the Form I-9.  For more information, please see the U.S. Passport Card link located in the Related Links section of this page.
