DHS/USCIS/PIA-030 E-Verify Program

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offers online services to individuals that provide greater insight and control into the handling of their personally identifiable information (PII) in E-Verify. Those online services are available through myE-Verify. myE-Verify is a free Web-based service that allows individuals to engage with USCIS and participate in the E-Verify process through a unique and secure account. This secure account allows U.S. workers to review their employment eligibility using the online tools and databases employers who participate in E-Verify use. USCIS is requiring that all users create a USCIS online account through myAccount before using certain myE-Verify features, such as Self Check, Self Lock, and Case History. Previously, individuals could use Self Check and Case Tracker without having a myE-Verify account. USCIS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to assess the PII used to create and authenticate accounts to access myE-Verify services, as well as demonstrate how USCIS mitigates associated privacy risks.
