The Wait is Over – E-Verify Self Check Is Now Available Nationwide

If you’re hunting for a job, you’ll want to use every tool you can to ensure that you’re ready. Since we first launched Self Check less than a year ago, one of the most frequent questions we’ve heard is, "When can I use Self Check in my state?"

The wait is now over. Self Check is now available nationwide in both English and Spanish.

Starting today, job hunters in every state across the country, as well as Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, will be able to use Self Check to confirm their employment eligibility status.

More and more employers use E-Verify to confirm their new hires’ work eligibility. You can use Self Check to confirm your work eligibility, see if there are any discrepancies in your records, and learn how to fix them before searching for a job. For more information, please visit the Self Check website at http://www.uscis.gov/selfcheck.
