Last year the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) renamed its self-service E-Verify Self Check program to myE-Verify. Now this online system which enables individuals to check the status of their eligibility to work in the United States is being expanded and revamped. The USCIS just announced that its new website will be “a one-stop shop for employees to create and maintain secure personal accounts and access new features for identity protection.”

Although myE-Verify will only be available in Arizona, Idaho, Colorado, Mississippi, Virginia - as well as the District of Columbia - at first, eventually it is intended to be used in all 50 states. At its inception the program’s main purpose was to allow employees with valid social security numbers to ensure that they could pass an employer’s verification.  The updated program will provide employees several new features including:

 

  • myE-Verify accounts – Allows employees and job seekers to set up free and secure personal accounts to manage the use of their information in E-Verify and Self Check through the available myE-Verify features.  

  • Self Lock – Allows individuals to lock their social security numbers to prevent unauthorized or fraudulent use within E-Verify. Users can proactively protect their identities from being used by others to illegally gain employment. Self Lock is available only to myE-Verify account holders.  

  • myResources – A section of the myE-Verify site that contains information in multi-media formats to educate employees about their rights as well as the responsibilities of employers in the employment eligibility verification process

 

At this point the myE-Verify system has been used by approximately 550,000 people, according to the USCIS which anticipates the number to increase as it augments the program’s capabilities.

To make the long story short - I wouldn't be here now writing this review if it wasn't for him. He fought with me and for me as if he was defending himself and not some stranger from a foreign country. I will highly recommend him - if your case has any chance at all he is the one you need.
