E-Verify, the Internet-based system that employers use to check whether job applicants may legally work in the U.S. is currently unavailable due to a Federal Government shutdown. You will not be able to access your E-Verify account!
E-Verify Customer Support and any related services are also closed.
Which includes the following:
- Employees will not be able to resolve Tentative Nonconfirmations (TNCs)! A TNC response means that the Social Security Administration (SSA) and/or the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could not confirm that the employee’s information;
- Telephone and e-mail support is unavailable. You may send e-mails but they will not respond until re-opened;
- All E-Verify webinars and training are canceled;
- E-Verify Self Check is unavailable.
For more details on the E-Verify closure, please review the USCIS News Bulletin, “E-Verify is Currently Unavailable“!
